You are invited to


in an exercise of collective memory making


Reflection/Connection is a participatory community art project, an exercise in collective memory making for this time in isolation. You are invited to contribute a short video self-portrait of 10-20s, which will be filtered through piece of open source generative code art, schemaVideoVariabile, and added to the Reflection/Connection collection. The collection will be on permanent display on a dedicated Instagram account @reflectionConnectionProject. A compilation of the filtered video portraits was exhibited in VR in 2020 during the Covid lockdown as part of the Creative Code Visual Art Showcase.

This project is instigated by Nathan Starchild.
