It is theoretically possible for “edge-enhancing” algorithms commonly found in both video cameras and video projectors to combine forces to create stable patterns when connected together to produce a video feedback sequence. What was not expected was that the behavior of the worm-like shapes that are generated would actually be worm-like. No software was written to generate this video, and except for some minor jostling of the camera, there was no input from the environment whatsoever. In other words, once the equipment was adjusted to create a stable feedback pattern, the newly created system was allowed to run its course.
