Occupy the Screen at Urban Reflections, Berlin and Riga

Research output: Non-textual outputExhibition


Developed in September 2014 for the Connecting Cities Event #7: URBAN REFLECTIONS Berlin and Riga 2014 European City of Culture, this installation takes live oblique camera shots from above the screens of two separate audience groups in Berlin and Riga, both located on large 40m2 blue ground sheets, which then combines them on screen via a chroma-key video switcher in a single composited image. As the merged audiences start to explore this collaborative, shared telepresent space they discover the ground beneath them, as it appears on screen as a digital backdrop, locates them in a variety of surprising and intriguing anamorphic environments. These backgrounds directly reference their social and cultural setting, containing converged scenes of Riga and Berlin in a 3D ludic game world.
