ooo (2008)

‹ooo› is a series of 10 interactive online movies. The viewer sees a brief scene from daily life: public space, streets, plazas, intersections, bus stops. People in motion, people passing one another, waiting, walking abreast, encountering each other. Users can influence the film at any time by interrupting the chronologically synchronized action at various rollover points. The current playback position is stopped and the film simultaneously duplicated. The signal is doubled and while the original scene is a frozen image, the duplicate plays on. People walk out of their own images. Interference begins. The images becomes unstable, unclear. Energy interacts with itself.

Full Description

«Brain researcher Karl Pribram asserts that our brain primarily speaks to itself and the rest of the body not in words or images, not even in bits or chemical impulses but in the language of wave interferences, the language of phase, amplitude and frequency. We perceive an object by stepping into resonance with it and synchronizing our oscillations with those of the object. Knowing the world literally means being on its wavelength. [...]

... the non-identity of a phenomenon with itself, the absence of self-presence, the untimeliness originating from aspects of the thing we call the spirit.» Jacques Derrida
