Prism [Venice biennale]

A videoprojector is placed in the middle of the room. Immediately in front of its lens a rotating platform with glass prism is placed. Videoprojection shows a famous film “Casablanca”, but as it is optically refracted through the rotating prism the narrative and the characters of the movie are constantly displaced and fragmented.

Prism - total

Prism - detail


The viewer will simultaneously observe several fragments of the same frame or sequence as they travel around the walls of the room, divided in space and spectral colors.
