NOTES is a series of live video performances where prepared film, video and photographic material is structured together into a stream of collaged audio-visual vignettes. For each performance, through the manipulation of a shifting archive of sampled material, new sets of relations arise. From a central computer, the prepared footage is combined with satellite imagery; real-time video sources; text overlays and subtle software interventions.
