Rose and Cyan, 2011. Dual-strip Anaglyph 3D 16mm film loops, projectors, gels, stands, 3D galsses 20 seconds (looped).
Chris tells us how it was created:
"The rose was filmed on 16mm film using two Bolex cameras side by side; reproducing the perspective of each eye. Once processed the films were spliced into a pair of loops and projected from a pair of 16mm projectors sat next to each other. A red filter is placed in front of the lens of one projector and a cyan on the other. The projections meet on the wall with the image slightly offset and with the viewer wearing similarly tinted spectacles, the image becomes a 3 dimensional illusion of a rose. With the projection rendering the rose a little over life size, its virtual presence is created in the space. The work is conceived as a gallery installation with the technology on display and as much a spectacle as the image itself. The mechanics ‘keep alive’ this image of a (once) living thing, however in relationship to the reality of the objects that sustain it (and the object it once was), it is lacking."
