Chit-chat

We imagine Biden accompanied by Ketty Lester’s sparsely orchestrated ‘Love Letters’ (1962) both for its wide-eyed sixties vibe and for its Lynch-mediated undertow of physical violence.

Tools

Houdini 19.0 + Redshift 3.0 + DaVinci Resolve 17.1

Display

While viewable perfectly well on mobile devices and within manifestations of the metaverse, this work is optimized for standalone display on a large, 16:9 aspect ratio screen, orientated vertically. Ideally, the screen should stand at least 78 inches / 200 cm tall, to endow the image with an affect of physical presence. The color space of the display should be set to sRGB and hence an output gamma of 2.2 and a white point of D65.
