'Cantaloup' and 'Artifacts' are both documentary works in which Steina and Woody offer informal explanations of the function of the Digital Image Articulator, or Imager: a sophisticated imaging device they designed with Jeffrey Schier. In 'Cantaloup' Steina offers a highly informative yet spontaneous demonstration of the complex imaging device. She casually documents the designing and building of Imager and explains the size of pixels, the layers of colour and tone used to create form and techniques such as grabbing (freezing) the image and multiplying it.
