"Boat Yer Row Row Row" is a 3-channel video that is based on Lattanzi's original, generative software "Voyage of the EmpreSS of RuSSia". The visuals of "Boat Yer Row Row Row" resemble the strong-contrast graphics painted on "dazzle" ships (ship camouflage systems used in World War I and early WWII). However, the video graphics are dynamically generated from a simple mathematical equation and two even simpler image-fragments that sweep the screen with never-repeating movement and pattern. "Boat Yer Row Row Row" offers anyone taking visual aim, a dizzying oceanic delirium.
