The 9 camera one hour video quest begins with an alchemist who sends the identity-less beings off from Columbus Circle to search with their camera third eye for themselves on the edge of nature and the city. The identity l.a.r.p.- 9 journeys to an open space is a collaborative project conceived and directed by Purchase Sophomore Jonathan Mittiga, it uses the 13th screen live editing system to create one new identity as gathered from each participant.

The 13th screen is a collaborative video making project created by Carrie Dashow, with programming by Matt Raibert.
The 13th screen is a live multi-channel camera person centric video editing system that works as a collaborative video device inputting footage from 9 synchronized live or recorded video signals (cameras and in this case recorded dvds.) We have reprogrammed a surveillance multiplexer using a microcontroller and specialized software created with Jitter and MaxMsp to read and send out the signals. 9 people are each provided a video camera, recording begins simultaneously as they shoot for an allotted amount of time. Each camera person individually chooses when their camera will be shown via a signal call by putting their hand over the lens for a second – this momentarily blackens the screen, which will be recognized by the computer as a cut. Both metaphorically and actually, this device removes an external editor and uses collaboration known and unknown as its editing tool. The 13th screen is a tool that can be used to increase group dynamic through its processes.
