Stereoscopic 3D panorama montage and Installation, 2011
Stereoscopic 3D panoramas, captured in the Tasmanian wilderness are juxtaposed with scenes of extreme urban development in Hong Kong.
The contact points are shaped as seamless transitions, disclosing unusual perspectives between both extremes. The work has a narrative quality, the observer can connect the succession of images with his own story lines.
The work consist of a 80k pixel wide stereoscopic panorama constructed from 21 separate scenes and on location sound recordings.
Presentation is either as a stereoscopic 3D filmic work (duration ~12 min), where the panorama scrolls slowly behind the screen, or, as done at the premiere at the ZKM Centre for Art and Media Karlsruhe Germany, within a 360 degree panoramic stereoscopic 3D projection screen. In this set-up, the panorama spins slowly in a loop (duration ~8 min). There is an interesting effect on the perception while watching the work within the panoramic screen, the real physical room and one's orientation in it gives way to the virtual space. Leaving visitors somehow confused about their location and orientation.
