Artwork#3: SITE SEEING ZOOM: A performance with access through the media to the world of memory (2001)
Genre: Performance, performance installation, visual art, digital art
Description: A collaboration between Hotel Pro Forma and the digital art collective Crosscross (France).
Site Seeing Zoom reflects the interplay of man and computer and rejoices at the diversity of the world.
Like hovering pilots we travel in the landscape of memory, zoom in and out, change angle, speed and height. We map and catalogue human ways of expression. We use the navigation in a virtual architecture as the composition and the narrative style of the performance. The movement of the travel is projected on screens as sequences of images that are doubled, reflected, and repeated like living memory itself. The audience walks round the cross-structure of the screens and experience the performance from different angles.
