Max/MSP: Video Edit App

I made an application for Australian artist Andrew Newman. This enabled him to automatically edit videofiles based on a textfile and a pool of videos. He used this for his installation “Love Letter by Letter” which was exhibited in the CAST Gallery in Hobart, Australia.

In his own words:
“Newman’s video installation ‘Love Letter by Letter’ painstakingly transcribes five years of correspondence between two lovers separated during the second world war. Each letter of the alphabet is represented by a corresponding colour and musical tone, and the letters are played back to each other on opposing screens, letter by letter. The viewer is immersed in the synesthesiastic archive of love as the abstracted letters sing to each other in an endless loop.”
