Videosynth Portraits


This series of portraits was created by processing video of subjects through an LZX Industries-format video synthesizer system, with occasional use of other video effects gear, and then extracting stills. While sometimes retaining a recognizable likeness, the goal is less to represent individuals than to use them as a starting point for a series of chain reactions within the mostly analog processing system. The resultant images depict a space in between the subject and the parameters, limits, and possibilities of a standard definition NTSC video signal.
