”Flicker (Black and White Rotating at Accelerating Speed)” 2008
HD and SD-DVD pal computer animation
4min.10sec. loop
No sound

The animation consists of a black and white square that starts to rotate slowly with an exponential rising velocity.The animation stops when the rotation per frame becomes180 degrees. At that point the black space simply changes place with the white from one frame to the next. It becomes impossible to determine which way it rotates.This way the frame rate (numbers of pictures per second) becomes a more and more important part in the perception of the animation.
