A handful of small geometric animation loops created with the wobbulator. The wobbulator is an analogue machine built by olli williams. geometry, artwork and films by karborn.
‘John Karborn, a new-media audio-visual video artist, developed The Wondrous Wobbulator Machine for Young and Old Alike by feeding geometric still frames into a custom-built wobbulator, a device that visualizes frequencies and wavelengths of a given sound. To record these, he uses analog video sequences (VHS, for example) while a given frequency is being passed through the wobbulator — what results is the geometric animation to the right. Algorithmically, the wobbulator utilizes a combination of manual control feedback and an oscillator that produces a visual representation of the image being manipulated by the given sound waves.’
