A study in time-sorted photography

In collaboration with time-lapse photographer Christopher Andrew and software developer Reese Murdock, Timeline Shift is an application of a custom image buffering process developed by DreamBait in TouchDesigner.

Loading sequences of images into a 3D video texture, frame animations are generated from the shapes and rhythms of both the subject and a key video feed, resulting in an ever evolving composition of both space and time.

Intended as a real-time evolving composition, these selected renderings represent data driven visualizations of time, tempo, sound pressure, or potentially any other data feed, and are recorded for archival purposes, but unique in every showing

Developed throughout 2018, iterations of this work have been displayed at the Twisted Oyster Film Festival, and TunnelVision, a multi-media pop exhibitiont produced by Canvas and the Chicago Loop Alliance.
