No Signal - Found Faces - Version 2

A better mix, tweaked software to make for more interesting transitions, more source images too.

...this one draws from several thousand scanned-in images of things that look like faces, gathered over the last ten years or so, in an exploration of the human mind's tendency towards pareidolia (specifically the way the subconscious mind sees the human face in inanimate objects)..they are randomly faded/merged together by the software and output direct to the desktop as a movie file.

The audio is also generative: another piece of jungulator software randomly mixes/fades up and down/echoes/speeds up and down anything up to four different samples at any one time, and outputs them to the desktop as a stereo sound file.
