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
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.
