Performance with video titlers
Composite is platform for the real-time presentation, annotation and re-combination of ideas.
The Composite Lectures format presents 3 short papers, each lasting about 5 minutes, followed by a final summary of the ideas shared in that session. Since the indivisual talks are annotated on analogue video titlers, the final summary itself becomes an overlaid remix, a video text cut-up.
The title refers in this case the yellow ‘composite’ phono cable I have used to connect the devices, from the camera, through the daisy-chained video tilters, through to the projector at the end. It is these through these cables and devices that the presentations are relayed visually, annotated, and finally summarized.
