Temporal Vortex is a video slitscan device that is capable of storing 16 seconds of incoming video and then uses time displacement oscillators to smoothly (or discontinously if yr not concerned with integrating yr curves lol) warp time! I was influenced mostly by this particular video art piece from the 1980s by Zbigniew Rybczyński in which they go all out in video slitscan distortions for an intensely surreal experience

I studied up on how this kind of effect was made and was originally dismayed to find that this video piece required months and months of physically splicing strips of film together. As my primary interest in video is working with real time processing I had to do some serious heavy duty work to get something like this off the ground! Once I figured out how to best manage the massive amount of video storage involved I next decided that I wanted to have a set of oscillators built in to control time displacement for the most dynamic and performative effects! Similar to my Artificial Life and Spectral Mesh units, these oscillators are custom designed to allow for a wide range of potential time distortions! But then I realized that this device could also sample and loop incoming video as well so I incorporated a freeze function that allows you to loop portions of the input buffer! Truly a one of a kind and groundbreaking device that blurs the lines between video processor and video synthesizer!

The Capture Edition comes with a raspberry pi, power supply, a midi keyboard with the controls premapped, breakout cable for composite video output, a custom enclosure, and sd card with Temporal Vortex preinstalled plus usb dongles for capturing analog video via yellow rca and s-video and for capturing digital video via HDMI

Not only is this device capable of an infinite array of beautiful and expressive feedback possibilities, but Andrei is super responsive and very awesome. He helped me track down an issue with the power supply on my end (I had to move the included wall wart to a power conditioner from an strip that was maxed out on amperage), and was very thorough and thoughtful in his replies. The Auto-Waaave version is a must-buy: the responsive and extremely deep modulation capability from an audio source is insanely powerful. This is simply the best bang for your buck, and I greatly appreciate the creator’s attention to detail and ethical practice of repurposing e-waste.

Absolutely incredible device! I started experimenting with it tonight and I’m just scratching the surface of its capabilities and I’m already blown away. The waaave pool is a must purchase for any glitch artist’s arsenal.
