Network Maelstrom (2017)

A short experiment utilizing Signal Culture’s Maelstrom app with a clip from the 1976 film “Network” (dir. Sidney Lumet) in which Howard Beale generates a whirlwind of visual artifacts as he lurks around his stained-glass window church TV stage which become even more pronounced and disorienting when converted to immersive 360 video. The accompanying audio track is an equally chaotic multi-layered collage of sound samples from the same film as if the viewer were stuck in the eye of a storm of emotionally impassioned gibberish that weaves in and out of decipherability now that every media outlet in the 21st century seems to have it’s own Beale feeding back on itself. Produced using VDMX and Signal Culture’s Maelstrom app.
