RGB:1 is the first video art piece in what became an ongoing series exploring the nature of video as a digitaly tactile medium, and of time and its relation to event through the process of being diigitized by the camera, and manipulated by the artist. In this piece I take a single event and repeat a simple manipulation over a span of time. The video is broken down to its essential components, or channels, the RGB color information which is encoded in each pixel. These chanels are then allowed to slip out of sync with each other and recombine. In this manner I am able to construct complex new images from a finite amount of information only by changing the variable of time. This theme of reducing video to its base elements, restructuring, and reasembling them forms the basis for the RGB series.
