Counting Bees #2

It is recommended you play this video with your volume set high.

This piece was made using about 600 video layers in Final Cut. However, because Final Cut can only have a maximum of 99 layers at a time, you have to render the video sequence and export it, then import the rendered sequence and layer that one several times.

Though this piece is #2, it is currently the only one. This video was made to have a narrative structure, but with no narrative content, so it has a clear beginning, middle, and end.

Some people have said this video contains a debate or argument, possibly in an interrogation room. The most direct connection to 'bees' is the buzzing noise, an artifact from having so many layers, and the multiplicity of individuals, but there were others. There are many different interpretations that you can make.

Counting Bees #2 was displayed at the International Digital Media Art Association's iDEAs 07: Beyond Boundaries digital media art exhibit.
