On June 6th, The Museum of Modern Art will act as a black box testing site for a “beta version” of Eve Sussman & Rufus Corporation's whiteonwhite:algorithmicthriller. The film will be powered by code, programmed exclusively for the project, that edits the film in real time culling from a server loaded with over 2,000 film clips, sounds, and narration. The guided nature of the code causes it to pull video and audio, based on voice over and tags written into the metadata of each file and the narrative. The movie mixes chronology, intertwining beginning, middle or end, never repeating the same way twice.
White on White is supported by Creative Capital, The Richard Massey Foundation, CEC Artslink, New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA), The Trust for Mutual Understanding and Sisita Soldevila/Amister Collection - Barcelona
