This piece is a multitasking challenging game that asks the audience to identify the content of the 10 videos included. The work questions our society’s increasing demand on the human brain. This video challenges the brain to process more and more information simultaneously, while providing less and less cohesive information.
Video #1 is a combination of two 18 sec videos rapidly switching frames from one video to another. While keeping the video duration at 18 seconds, 50% of the original frames were discarded. The frames of the two videos are essentially zipped like a zipper or shuffled into one, asking for the brain to respond to both stories in the videos. Video #2 ups the ante by shuffling three different videos, rapidly switching frames from one video to another. Video #3 shuffles four videos. So on and so forth, video #10 shuffles 9 videos and concludes the game.
