Created in July 2008 using footage filmed at Middlesex University's Trent Park campus in March 2005, as part of the Memory Pool research project, and initially used for the piece Trace. A single sequence of improvised movement was translated into Vector Paths using the application Motion, with the original sequence manipulated to appear three times, in differing directions and speeds. The particular and distinctive visual patterning was uncovered by accident while exploring a motion blur filter. The resulting output shows the filter's calculation process in action in what is effectively a diagnostic mode, not intended for visual display.
