legerdemain is a single-channel video produced during at the Experimental Television Center (ETC) using real-time image processing tools like the Jones +/-5v system and the Paik/Abe Wobulator. From the start, image and sound are internally generated from the same source—a bank of analog oscillators. Using strategies of dazzle camouflage, the prison stripe and the upc code, the performer attempts to become part of the interval, neither foreground or background like the stripe’s own visual structure.
