Perpetual Now II

Scott Eaton

A fragmented, evolving data landscape echoing and looping through time

This piece is inspired by early explorations in geometric abstraction, particularly Marcel Duchamp’s Nude Descending A Staircase, No. 2, and the 19th century experimental photography of Étienne-Jules Marey and Eadweard Muybridge. Through layers of transformation, the piece remixes a choreography of human movement and geometry into a meditative, temporal experience.

Perpetual Now II is co-presented by Meta Open Arts and Fundamental AI Research (FAIR) at Meta, where the work was developed while in residence.

Running time: 6 minutes, 40 seconds
