Loops & such...

Hi Tim,

but are usually done with live cameras. The source of change comes from 
feedback, when the camera is zoomed within the frame of the video monitor
screen; and from performance, when the camera is zoomed beyond the frame of
the video monitor screen. (refer to my Loopers Delight Profile for an
explanation of the basic video system I used)

because much of my art is multimedia.

Glad to hear u enjoyed the art on my website!
