Bitwall 2

Project for a fašade installation in Bielefeld, 1999

A video camera scans the entrance area outside the building and presents the approaching visitors on a large vertical bitwall-display.
The image matrix is interrupted at regular intervals in order to perceptually enlarge the size of the image. The eye of the observer fills in the missing parts, interpolating the transitions from image strip to image strip and optically eliminating the gaps The result is a ladder-like object made up of horizontal beams, 18.4 meters high and 5.6 meters wide.
