Video Screening, Solo Exhibition
‘50.000 SCANS’ is part of an on-going project called ‘Scanning Cinema’. It explores the physical action of
scanning moving images. This video is made entirely out of scans. A self-developed manual scanning process
generates the shifts between them. Using a flatbed-scanner and a computer screen, as a newly combined medium,
the images are wrapped into one single frame. These scans are then assembled into an animated film.
‘50.000 SCANS’ focuses on how the choreography of a human body functions in the scanned reality.
It explores this scanned dimension and holds it against the historical birth of film and the registration of
movement through the medium of photography. Each Act deals with a different variation on both editing-technique
as well as camera-movement.
The sound is adapted to the same scan-process as the images.
‘50.000 SCANS’ is an Escautville production.
