Dark Islanders is operating with a 2,5D-approach to flatness and depth related to a new perception of space and body. Volumetric Video offers the chance for a second lens to enter and navigate the scene. What is revealed is a vision strafed with blind spots and occlusions, one in which the viewer is lift to navigate a non-space of thick inky black. The audience is invited not only to get “behind the scene”, but even “behind the screen” or “behind the skin”, an inside-out experience of the human body.
Dark Islanders is the single-channel and voice-over short film version of Dark Optics & Thick Film (Installation).
Short film, 2020, 6 min, color stereo
