David Claerbout – Algiers – sections of a happy moment. Projected slideshow
A kind of conceptual blend in which a single moment is constructed from multiple pictures taken from different viewpoints and projected as a slide show.
Turns out to be ‘impossible’ because even with 100 cameras around the scene the cameras themselves would appear in the pictures. In the actual slide show no cameras are visible.
The work is in fact a digital reconstruction, each photograph references the other and is constructed from a series of composited elements.
Situates architectural model making in the context of photography
