The Background

Some of this work at the Institute of Sonology was done in the analogue studio.

 This work has been documented here
Visual link to documentation of audio-visual work done in
          the analogue studio

In the above work there is a fundamental asymmetry between sound and image:

A basic "Sound Generator" can be created by a simple oscillator
-but what would be the equivalent "Image Generator"?

A more recent digitally simulated study for a video based Image Generator

There is also a semantic problem:
What is an "Image"?
An image of what?

This question is tackled here
