“Temporal Distortions” is a mirroring video installation. If you stand still, you look like you normally would in front of a mirror. But this is no ordinary mirror. Reflected movements can be delayed up to 3 seconds on a pixel by pixel basis. The animated “reflection” is the result of the particular “time map” applied and the participant’s movements. The work demands a collaboration between the programmed environment and you.
Unlike “Recollections”, this exhibit works in small or large spaces and doesn’t need a special background or light control.
The installation shown below is a five screen version. There are three effects per screen that switch about every 30 seconds. It is part of the summer 2015 “InterPlay” exhibition made in collaboration with Ars Electronica and will become permanent at the science centre.
