Inside the strongly coloured flight-case there was 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 also well suited for my remixes of old ephemeral film-footage found on the net. Much of it found in the Prelinger Archives.
A more recent version of The Rocket Machine. Now with flatscreen monitors.
The two video loops are played out from RaspberryPi’s in full frame-sync.
This also gives the extraordinary possibility to update and change, via wifi in the exhibition space, the project on a daily basis. As in this project.
The latest version, with larger 49″ screens
