Passage for Francis - Available for viewing in The iotaCenter's Library & Study Center

Categories: [New Acquisition] 



Conceptualized as a new media funeral rite-of-passage by Robert Mulder and his father, Dr. H.F. Mulder, "Passage for Francis" integrates abstract animation into a cardiac Doppler audiogram to create a flow of geometrical shapes & patterns. Generated and controlled in real time as inspired by the music, this unique concept merges themes from biology, medicine, and art into a stunning study of rhythm and "Panta Rei" (everything flows). This piece was performed at Dr. H.F. Mulder's funeral in November 2007.

"Passage for Francis" and any of our other videos can be viewed at our Library & Study Center in Culver City, CA. Please set up a viewing appointment by contacting us at: info@iotacenter.org
