Recto/verso is made up of images and sounds recorded by two friends who live on separate continents. Each of us posts a separate video or audio clip each day; neither of us knows what the other one has recorded. Posts are then strung together according to various recombinatory patterns or series.

series two

----> crossed leading pairs

Here we add additional constraints that limit the progression of image/sound combinations. The only “pure” chance encounter takes place in the first pair. Subsequent iterations are limited by a fixed pattern of resonances or influences, described by the arrows in the diagram. The initial “leading” pair generates new image/sound pairings. The final pair bears the trace of previous iterations and may be a “differed” version of the first
