Loop. Dur. 15 minutes
The Pit is a film created for endless loop. Created from gopro footage (2014, creative commons) treated & rendered in 4 layers of Sierra Lite in discordant resolutions. Order is figurative; emerging from asymmetric dither. A comment on the source film reads "reminds me how to move in chaos”. All 9 chapters change responding to comments on the source film. No one was harmed in the making of this film. Original sound by the artist. Each chapter (1/1) comes with link to full film (1/10) in prores at 4K 48gb & full soundtrack. The MP4 on-chain suffers compression not present in the full 4K you receive. Everyone is smiling.
