The Comet

The Comet is an audiovisual digital art object by Massimo Magee, designed to be read by the computer as both a visual still image and a piece of audio, these being two readings of the same file. The piece was shaped across both visual and audio dimensions functionally simultaneously, meaning that a change in the visual also affected the audio, and a change in the audio also affected the visual. While the computer sees the piece as one file with both visual and audio dimensions enmeshed within and between each other at once, human observers require it to be translated into separate visual and audio readings. Here the two readings are superimposed into a video file for easy viewing. Read more
