The function of the Plane Modulator is to analyze and experience the relationships between movement, time, space, and color through applying transformations to digital constructions. For example,
rotating a simple plane about an arbitrary axis produces a dynamic quadrilateral. The addition of a second instance of the plane at a different rotation begins to construct the movement of the object through space. Through adding more instances, the virtual volume of the rotation reveals itself, but the shapes of the individual planes become obscured. Increasing the horizontal and vertical spacing between the planes clarifies their individual movements.
        An interface was created to provide control over the geometry. The speed, size, and positional placement of the objects can be manipulated and a near limitless number of geometric primitives can be added to the system. Creating different patterns in time on the lower portion of the screen relate to patterns in space in the main image area.
