Passage by Bernd Oppl

Passage by Bernd Oppl

“Passage” consists of three video sequences in which moving different elements in the room initially creates the illusion that the recording camera is moving. The room elements – a space-filling black square, a mirror that doubles the room – do not only move in one direction, at first away from the camera, but also back towards the camera. By no later than the second movement the illusion collapses in parts. All three sequences merely hint at the illusion of camera movement intentionally without really acquitting it, but also without completely dismantling it. This way, “Passage” creates a state of floatation of sorts in which illusion is generated while at the same time its production method is visible to a certain degree.
