The video F6 E80641 is part of the color exercises series, which deals with the representation of colors in digital media. This series includes several generative scripts that use different color spaces, explore them and output them as (moving) images. These sketches are constantly expanded, modified and improved, thus growing into software for ephemeral installations and musical performances or finding permanent form as film.

The music is created through the interpretation of the color values in several places as humming and sizzling surfaces and beats and is expanded by subtle to strong interventions by Michael Fischer and Gerald Roßbacher.

Color exercise 6 – Starting from a randomly generated starting point, Color Exercise 6 takes us on a journey through the RGB color space. The three components red, green and blue are interpreted as spatial axes. Constantly following the same direction, we wander through the color space, penetrating the boundaries of the same to re-enter the space on the opposite side, leaving a trace in the form of a slowly changing color gradient on the canvas.
