modular video synthesizer patches and patchwork quilt | 2022

In Patches, DebStep combines a patchwork quilt sewn from second hand fabrics with a patchwork of analog video synthesis segments. Patches – a play on words – refers to patches created by sewing varied pieces of fabric together and patches created by connecting cables from one module device to the other in order to achieve video shapes and movement in video synthesis. By combining both mediums, Patches makes a visual connection between the historical traditions of American quilting and modern technologies.
