    By Markus Kison ( www.markuskison.de ) and Daniel Franke ( www.daniel-franke.com ). Sound by Jose G. Soler. Exposé A camera fixed on the concrete cube sculpture recognizes the presence of human faces within its scope. With a randomized choice it will focus on one of the bystanders and adjust its movement to his; tracking the eye movements of the viewer, a software computes the corresponding angle of view projecting onto the cube the very section of the space the sculpture is blocking from the viewers eye; thus making the cube appear transparent. The video sculpture Durchsehen, Exp. 01 (augmented perspective) overwrites the common notion of perspective and plays with the significance of perspective in an art historical perspective; the work of art evades the gaze of the viewer or rather: the two are equated. The gaze of the observer coincides with the object of observance in a piece that also draws a line to former strategies of dealing with vision and depiction: the renaissance praxis of painting on glass. Through the real-time projection on the cube a 3dimensional depiction of 2dimensionality occurs; the catoptric turns dioptric. The framing plane of the conventional video image becomes fragmented as work and reality intertwine in an augmented perspective. (Text translated by Mikala Hyldig Dal) Developed during a resideny at .HBC Berlin. Made with openFrameworks.

            • [in]security camera

              The (in)security camera is a device which combines two often related but opposing ideas: safety and fear. From the perspective of a disembodied observer, the system appears to be normal, a security camera attached to a black and white CRT security monitor. However, when a moving object (such a person) enters the camera’s field of view, the device becomes startled, and hides, lens down, in the corner. So long as someone remains in front of it the camera continues to hide, returning to its normal position only after confirming that the coast is clear. Conceptually, the (in)security camera explores both ideas of surveillance and ideas of social anxiety or fear of others. Viewed from the perspective of surveillance, the system brings into comparison the roles of observer and the observed and the power disparity inherent in those two roles. The (in)security camera reverses these roles, with the mechanism of surveillance (the camera system) becoming the subject of observation by the public. No different than us at the end, the machine may believe in the need for ever increasing security and surveillance, but at the same time is terribly afraid of having that gaze turned upon itself. In the same act, the monitor creates and records an image which is free from human presence, useless as a record of an event, but perhaps a kind of aesthetic exploration of emptiness or stillness within the crowd.

                      A stereoscopic Realtime Performance based on Kafka´s "The Trial" by 1n0ut (Robert Praxmarer, Reinhold Bidner) Winner of the Media Art Award Salzburg In Franz Kafka’s THE TRIAL, 1n0ut found a world full of loops, repeats, instructions and protocols which are familiar parts of every computer programme. This classic text becomes the springboard for a stereoscopic real-time dance theatre piece. The images of the performers are gathered digitally, manipulated and remixed live to plunge an audience each wearing 3D cinema glasses headlong into a thrilling and disturbing illusory world. What steers mankind, what goes, what is lie, what is the logic of the absurd and what the illogicality of reality? A remarkable adventure, which discovers new forms of expression to question the nature of reality and personal identity. Team: Artistic Direction 1n0ut (Robert Praxmarer, Reinhold Bidner) Dance - Acting - Choreography: Michael Kuttnig (Josef K.) Ulrike Hager Kathrin Wankelmuth Nanina Kotlowski Doku Cam: Ramsy Gsenger (Ars Electronica Futurelab)
