Spiral Gall is a single channel HD (1080p) video work that uses video footage of wind blown tree foliage to animate the speaking heads of surreal beings (see Figure 5). The subtle complexities of natural movement in the video footage are transferred to the constructed (digital photo montage) faces via a process that uses time-based shifts in the videos tonal density to animate facial movement. The dislocation of movement from video to animation imbues the animated beings with a complex and surreal simulation of life that is natural but inhuman.
