Phoney, Video Work (2004)

Early phone videos on the Nokia 6230 were limited to 15 seconds. Though you could make the recording time longer I decided it was a nice section of time for regular short films. I documented a trip to New Zealand and really just used the phone as a note book. There was no available software to convert the video from 3GP apart from a homemade program made by Zweistein (a version of it is still available for download Zweistein) Zweistein (Two Stones) is a joke insinuating it’s smarter than Einstein (one stone). Though the software converted the video it couldn’t handle the audio well. This had interesting results as the Audio increased in speed but was also doubled up in order to fit with the video.
