Stephan Schulz Rue Berri

Date(s): Sep 15 to Oct 20 2007

Exhibition

Stephan Schulz

Stephan Schulz will be in residence at OBORO in order to prepare his exhibition Rue Berri, an outdoor performance that will feed his interactive video in the large gallery.

During a multi-day performance the artist pushes up and down Berri street a custom-made camera dolly which is outfitted with video and position recording equipment. This “new media object” allows him to interacts with the people and activities he encounters and to records them in their particular space and time.

The data collected from these encounters is sent over a wireless network to the gallery. Here, on a wide screen projection, the gallery visitor can see a processed accumulation of videos representing the street. Interacting with the projection, the viewer plays with the linearity of time and space.
