battleofalgiers.jpga visual recomposition of the scenes from the film 'The Battle of Algiers' (1965) according to a self-organising, cell-based structure. French Authority & the Algerian Nationalist cells are represented by stills from the film & move according to different behavior rule sets. when cells of different camps intersect, they trigger video cells displaying each side's tactics (as depicted in the film) according to the rules of the system. see also iraq war fatalities.

The whole idea of rearranging video seems fascinating. One of my favourite was Danny Rozin's piece Mirror 3 at ITP where he segmented and rearranged a live TV feed to recreate the video captured mirror image of the person watching the screen. There's nothing on the web describing it (as it was never shown outside ITP) but there is a QuickTime movie http://itp.nyu.edu/~dhr4174/mirrorno3.mov
