Tap Evol: The Setup

July 2004

Supported by The Greenwall Foundation

Tap Evol is a customized video player tapped into a database of video clips. Fragments of video from the database are mixed in real-time, generating an ever-changing stream of limitless duration. The selection of source video presented here — The Setup — is drawn from the genres of computer game cutscenes and television commercials. The mini-narratives and situations from these clips are broken apart and fed into the software engine, producing an aura of intrigue and unresolved purpose.
