Back in the 1990s, Martin Reinhart invented a film technique called “tx-transform”, which exchanges time (t) and space axis (x) in the film. Normally, each individual film frame represents the entire space, but only a brief moment of time (1/24 second). In the case of tx-transformed films, however, the opposite is true: each film frame shows the entire time, but only a tiny part of the space – in cuts along the horizontal spatial axis, the left part of the image thus becomes the “before”, the right part the “after”.
We created a spatial audio mix for the VR Experience of the installation at the ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe.
