A camera that takes a very thin photograph - and then another - and then places those photos next to each other. So you are looking at the same place just later in time. So seeing lots of time piled on top of itself. However you talk about it is hard to get your head around but it makes for beautiful work.

Here are three artists working with slit-scan across video, photography and code.
