Muybridge-500: jog-shuttle as an operational mode of the digital
This thesis investigates the mode of operation of jog-shuttle as a dial in videotape editing technology and its way of operation. With the development of the technology, the upgrade culture turns the media devices into obsolete devices. Jog-shuttle as a physical dial which is found in the Bilkent Media Archaeology Lab is one of these devices. With the project, Muybridge-500 as an interactive installation, this thesis creates a rescue operation by transferring the mode of operation from analog to digital. This project by mimicking the device’s mode of operation without using it’s tactility, turns the jog-shuttle into a zombie media device. The recalling process saves the device from becoming obsolete and contributes to contemporary media by introducing a new mode of operation.The touchless operation by gestures of the new jog-shuttle is constructed with media archaeological gaze which demonstrates the non-linearity of the media. This knowledge transference takes again the analog device’s operation as a bodily action and forms a new mode of operation which affects the decision making process during the interaction.
