Dead End, rewind reversal
This inventive experiment with a stereo 3D image follows a train track ending at a ruined bridge and then back again through the forest. The focus is on the spatial perception of diverse depictions of the journey laid side by side, captured with a film camera and confusing the eye of the viewer with various overlays and inversions of time levels.
“Stereo3D films shall be done such a kind that they make no – or another – sense if they where only in mono2D. What we know from flat filmmaking is no help. So filmmakers have to start from scratch again and spectators too.”
Visual artist Björn Speidel (1976) explores the relationship between depiction, its content and sharing, and the use of film material or media. He also creates off-screen installations and explores technologies and methods of creating and perceiving stereoscopic 3D images. He teaches at the Berlin Film Institute, and is a member of the LaborBerlin art collective. In his work, he plays with the principles of offscreen, stereo 3D, and multi-dimensional images.
