arcanebolt, comprised of Tamas Kemenczy, Mark Beasley & Alex Inglizian, is a video synthesizer cobbled together out of homemade electronics and microcontrollers that target old, corruptible CRT displays. We use firmware generated animations, feedback loops, keyboards and bleeding circuits to build up and tear apart video images and tease out unexpected audio/video territory from bygone computer peripherals.
