In designing the visuals for In Undertow we combined practical effects with cutting-edge projection techniques, including a 360 ‘Holodec’ that stitched multiple projections into a unified frame. Throughout the video we utilized analogue feedback imagery–the mirroring effect created when a camera points back at its own monitor–in everything from the rear-projections to the final ghosting effect created with a VHS camcorder. Exploring the motif of infinite loops, our aim was to hybridize the analogue with the digital in an homage to the bygone era of video.
