Inside the strongly coloured flight-case there is a floating 16U rack with two 17” CRT monitors. When open, two DVD-players would hide under the Rocket Machine, positioned so that a pointed handheld controller could start both loops in a semi-synchronized way.
As way leads onto way, other projects took my attention and the Rocket Machine was not shown as much as I would have liked it to.
I still like the retro-industrial feel of the monitors and the flight-case, so it feels good to present it here.
The Rocket Machine was extremely well suited for my remixes of old ephemeral film-footage found on the net.
Much of it in the Prelinger Archives.
A recent version of The Rocket Machine. Now with flatscreen monitors.
Two video streams are played out from RaspberryPi’s, in full frame-sync. This also gives the possibility, via wifi in the exhibition space, to update and change the project on a daily basis.
