Seed, 2012, Shawn Towne

Seed is a computer generated video animation which explores technology and its connection to human memory, through the digital manipulation of recorded video, video feedback and sound. The heart of this work lies in conversation surrounding communication – communication between the artist and his environment, communication between audio and video and communication between the viewer and events in his or her past.
