The Janus Switch v.2 is a digital performance work merging live cinema and electronic sound in a poetic exploration of generative audio-visual feedback structures. Janus, the two-headed Roman god was notable for his ability to look in two directions at once. He was known as the god of doorways and passages. The Janus Switch is a techno-poetic realization of these ideas, where signal streams are switched rapidly back and forth to create a wide range of sonic and visual interactions.10 . The system software, created by Cory Metcalf in collaboration with David Stout, allows for realtime mixing of mathematic data to create an evolving array of hybrid audio-visual forms and aesthetic behaviors. The image vocabulary, like music, reveals its source as a kind of fluid state of transitory becoming. What emerges for the viewer is a dynamic subjectivity, as the audience must actively complete the circuit to co-create the meaning or apparent "thingness" of the abstract forms the mind and body is confronting. All of the resulting sound comes from the direct sonification of the image processes.
