The new 3-minute trailer for "Instant Fiction"!
"Instant Fiction" is a site-specific and interactive video installation. It is set in a place where people meet, such as a hotel lobby or a festival foyer. Remote-controlled cameras monitor all that happens, sending real-time images to screens distributed throughout the premises, much like a classic surveillance system. The only difference is that here, the images are subtitled, creating an instant fiction with accidental actors.
