"The current situation demands finding new ways of presentation and ways to keep the connection between art and art-consumers alive. Virtual exhibitions, online events, discussion and talks are increasing in popularity and a growing number of artists and independent venues start experimenting with hybrid forms of presentation.
In this vein, the cultural venue “Badstrasse 8”, a former bath barack in the frankonian city of Fuerth, started a new exhibition format called “Barrack Attack”, which offers an experimental platform for the creation of site-specific works and experiments with different ways of digitalised presentations.
My installation “time shift” plays a psychedelic perception game with time and senses. By repurposing obsolete media carriers I transform the space into an imaginary scene, full of light ,shadow and reflection. The space is optically deconstructed into a real-time collage. New angles, walls and shapes pop-up out of nowhere. Mirror glass objects fold and unfold the parts of the interior transmitting the distorted images even further.
The final film is a documentary and an impression at the same time, aiming to involve the viewer in the fantasticlight experience." Elizabeth Thallauer
