Interactive 360° Video Installation
Thgil/ Krad: In Reverse of Light and Dark is a 360° interactive immersive projection installation for “Satosphere” at SAT (Society for Arts and Technology) in Canada. This work attempts to discuss and rethink the link of cross-time zone and cross-regional in Cyberspace, and the juxtaposition with the real daily space- time environment. The relative relationship reflects on the artist’s experience during this residency; it’s about the opposite day-and-night relationship between Montreal (Canada, America) and Taipei (Taiwan, Asia) under Daylight Saving time (12 hours’ time differences).
The work juxtaposes the part of pre-record Time Lapse video (day to night) and the reverse one, merging/ linking half daytime and nighttime together and re- constituting the daily linear experience. The audience can stand in the center of the work and control the images as play/ reverse/ rotate to experience the giant differences, fascination and conflict between “the scene” and “the speeding time differences”.
