BUFFERS is a meditation on color and movement at the level of the pixel. It continues a line of inquiry that began with RASTER (2022) and SOBEL (2023), works that use looping movements and shader feedback to produce perpetual animated paintings. Caught between the tradition of the screensaver and the infinite animation of a GIF, BUFFERS calls attention to the rhythmic repetition of flickering and dancing pixels that permeate our idle screens.

Best experienced at fullscreen on a modern browser. Unique, deterministic qualities emerge when viewed in different aspect ratios and resolutions.

There are several keystrokes available. Please allow at least 10 seconds for the animation to achieve a visible, looping equilibrium before saving. Press 'g' to download a looping ninety-frame GIF. Press 's' to capture a single frame. Press 'f' for fullscreen (Press ESC to exit fullscreen). And double click to maximize the canvas.
