MOVING DISTANCE


type: video installation
location: Institute of Contemporary Art, Sofia, Bulgaria

The video installation studies the dynamic transformation of today’s complex environment through folding the space.

Two persons are moving in the same time, with the same high speed but at different points in space - physically divided by the length of a train. One is located in the very beginning of the train [first car] and the other one – in its very end [last car]. They are using simultaneously two independent ‘digital eyes’ - cameras to document everything that is happening out of the train windows in front of them.

The two persons are watching hypothetically the same view out but with few seconds difference in time it is no longer the same view. Some changes already got happened and the persons perceive two different environments.

The two 11:30 minute films between Burbank and Glendale railway stations in California [without any additional editing] are projected simultaneously out of two separate projectors directly next to each other cutting the space distance between them. The viewers in the gallery have the opportunity to hunt, trace and compare the differences between the two videos.
