Sorry, I’m a Cop

對唔住,我係差人, 2019

4-channel Video

Inspired by loop-based cinema, I am interested in the idea of looping short clips with slight changes in every loop. In Sorry, I’m a Cop, two video playback devices are playing the same short movie clip, and one of the devices has a slightly faster playback speed, resulting in an offset effect between two of them. The offset will be exaggerated over time as the feedback loop multiplies the effect, and hence creates counterpoints in visual and audio rhythm. Meanwhile, sound panning and video mirroring add more variations to it. When one video loop is nearly catching another one, the algorithm will be reset, and both video phrases will be played at the same speed simultaneously in the next loop.
