Single-channel, high-definition video animation with audio, generative (no duration), 2016

Endless Lovers is a computationally generated, single channel video and audio installation that runs using custom built software in the MaxMSP/Jitter environment. Endless Lovers is composed of real time generative video and audio that reimagines the contents of Samuel Steward’s Stud File as an open-ended exploration of queer memory, history, desire, code, love, and the losses of one man. The “Stud File” catalogued over four thousand of Steward’s sexual experiences from the 1920s to the 1970s.
