Description

Screensaver version of the generative work with the same title. (.exe file with installer. Un-tested on newer systems...)

Kafka is a screensaver where multiple sources are edited at random into one slow cross fading of two photographic portraits. The two faces are slowly morphed into each other at random starting points, switching orientation several time for then starting again as the movie loops endlessly in an ever changing 'identity switch.' The score is composed by a single composite sound that loops and overlaps at both pre-defined and random points in a slow crescendo. The longer the screensaver plays the higher the level of random overlaps, the higher the crescendo.
