Cyclops Cycle

by Le Grice, Malcolm

Video 2003


The Cyclops Cycle is technically hybrid. In its present form it is designed for video projection at large scale on three adjacent screens. The presentation medium is mini DVC tape though this could be transferred to DVD for installation presentation in a gallery context. The work is not interactive though the three screen format expects the viewer to make continuous choices for attention and each presentation has minor differences due to screen configuration and small shifts in synchronisation between the source tapes. Audio exists on all three tapes but is only played as a stereo output from one. The source material for the work is either a video ‘diary’ or is generated initially by computer and modified by both analogue and digital means. The ‘diary’ images have been shot over more than ten years and are sourced on the first generation Video8, later High8 and most recently on mini DV.
