Source:The Kruskal Papers
An animation of white dots moving on a black background and forming geometric patterns, while a graph on the lower left of the screen seems to correlate with their movement. Black and white picture with no sound. Eastman Kodak edge code reads "triangle, circle", which correlates to 1966.
Multi-Dimensional Scaling; Rotate
Source:The Kruskal Papers
These two films discuss multi-dimensional scaling and a computer program designed to assist with manipulating graph points for multi-dimensional scaling. Multiple sections of broken sprocket holes that cause slippage of film from frame. First film is black and white picture with no sound. Second film is color picture with no sound. Eastman Kodak edge code reads "circle, square" for the first film, which correlates to 1962 and "circle, plus" for the second film, which correlates to 1971.
