Dance to the Radio

This project consists of a series of three Web-based music videos for music written by the legendary 80s post-punk band, Joy Division. The imagery was selected by keyword. Each video is then generated out of 50 images that are algorithmically sequenced every time a video is played. This produces over 100, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000 potential sequences and suggests that every possible montage will never be seen.

In regard to the use of their songs, it is my hope that this project will generate interest in Joy Division (their music being for sale in many places, both on and offline). The stock photography was purchased for a nominal fee from a service called ArtToday.com. I would also like to acknowledge the work of both Colin Moock and the Flash Media Team at MSN.com for inspiring the video interface. Thanks to Helen Thorington.
