The same year that Flatpack was born, Austrian artist Gebhard Sengmüller presented his latest installation: Slide Movie – Diafilmprojektor. Gebhard was already something of a hero in the new media artworld, and Slide Movie only further added to his reputation as one of the most interesting artists working in the field of art and technology.
Using technology from a bygone era, the slide projector, the source for the work is an 80 second sequence from an old film. Each frame of the footage is mounted as a slide, then distributed among a series of slide projectors. Flashing, one immediately after the other, the projectors produce the appearance of a projected motion picture. The soundtrack emerges as a byproduct – the mechanical clattering of the projectors themselves.
Gebhard will deliver a talk about the work followed by a drinks reception on Wednesday 20 April, at 5pm.
