In order to demystify the Sandin Image Processor (an early realtime video processor created by Dan Sandin in the 1970s) for students of the digital generation, I began creating a thorough user guide ahead of teaching the realtime class at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The documentation pulls from multiple sources, first and foremost the Distribution Religion document that Dan Sandin and Phil Morton created in the 1970s.
Full documentation of each standard module and various starter patches will be posted soon.
I am a Chicago-based artist, educator, museum worker, and archivist. My videos, open-source tools, and real-time audio/video performances undermine the interfaces and break through the algorithms of digital and analog systems, examining hidden power structures and liberating latent aesthetic materialities in cathartic and captivating compositions.
