2001/2021, sound, MiniDV transfer to Mp4, loop

These clips combine shots from a MiniDV [MiniD(ziga)V(ertov)] tape I used in 2001 to layer in-camera edits by scanning back and forth on the tape without knowing where I was when I pressed record. Thirteen years later I used Vine for this kind of thing. In 2021 I bought an old camcorder and called this method "Swiss-cheesing." As far as I know there is no contemporary format that allows this kind of digital chance-based editing. "Architectural decoration and butter are perfectly conjugated” -André Breton
