Topografías is a small collection of six short videos in DVD format. In the videos I mixed the visual style of topographic drawings with live footage; I produced all sound in realtime using oscilloscopes and FM synthesis in Pure Data. All the materials were edited and produced using only GNU/GPL software.
This work explores the hybrid visual territories in moving image through the manipulation and mix of long shots with topographic imagery and compression artifacts. The hybrid visual character of the output prevents making any reference of time, space, and narrative to the original material and it centres the attention on its artificial and unreal aspect. The sound for each video was generated using a machine composed of oscilloscopes and modulators.
Documentation in the web site only available in Spanish. Online versions of the six videos under the link
