AIRGROUND

‘Airground’ is a 3Dimensional video-art installation. It is a visual conversation between the projected acrobats and the viewer, which is accomplished by following a looping, spiraling, non-linear path. From the moment the viewer wears the 3D glasses, the whole journey comes to life. ‘Airground’ is dealing with the sorrow of existence, loss, death and the rebirth through the looping experience.

 

INSTALLATION

 

The viewers are asked to enter a darkened area, where there are asked to wear their 3D glasses and then lie down on the mats on the floor looking upwards where the projection screen will be.

 

The projector is placed on the ceiling looking straight down, while the screen is hanged horizontally between the viewers and the projector in order to get the full experience of the acrobats’ movements.

 

Because of the stereoscopic 3D effect, the viewers have the realistic impression that the acrobats are really on top of them and that they are coming out of the screen above them.
