Triptych: Motion, Stillness, Resistance

Peter Horvath

Triptych is a generative (see glossary), three-paneled video that explores the dynamics of motion, resistance, and stillness. Each panel of Triptych features a series of images that construct a visual metaphor for one of these dynamics. The images are derived from the artist's own personal experience but are abstracted (i.e. they don't refer to specific moments) in order to evoke a more universal emotional quality. The three videos that comprise Triptych are compiled at random from images stored in a database. This random order is the result of an algorithm (see glossary) written by the artist. Triptych is triggered each time it is viewed, thereby making each viewing a unique and one-time rendering of the piece. Please note that there is no audio component to this work.
