visceral, visual, and public collision of the human body and water

Video: HOLOSCENES / Bed / 2014 / 90 seconds
Conceived and Directed by Lars Jan.

Part of #ImagineScienceAbuDhabi & #ExperimentalRecords exhibit & #Watermark opening night film.

"HOLOSCENES is a suite of multi-format artworks that manifest states of drowning — both in water and the larger systems of our own devising — in order to directly connect the short-term, everyday behaviors of individuals to the long-term patterns driving global climate change. Holoscenes re-imagines historical antecedents of public spectacle and gathering, and simultaneously translates related streams of scientific investigation into a visual, visceral, and public address in urban communal space that challenges our personal and collective capacities for long-term thinking and empathy".

Century-old stereographs are digitally collaged, making hybrid 3D scenes with stories

"To make the Stereocollision project, I remix old 3D photos known as stereographs.  I’m launching a new edition called “The Gilded Garden”: 12 stereographic cards with letterpressed stories, digitally blending scenes from the vast archives of the California Museum of Photography.  In discrete 3D spaces, these cards reveal a time and place where cause and effect occur in strange unison.  The adventure and bounty of the 2nd Industrial Revolution collide with forces of Nature - and people do their best to adapt in scenes both surreal and hauntingly familiar."
