Slide Movie – Diafilmprojektor

Slide Movie – Diafilmprojektor
an installation by Gebhard Sengmüller

Black cube installation: A film sequence (35mm motion picture, 24 frames/sec.) is cut up and the individual frames are mounted as slides. They’re then distributed among 24 slide projectors that are all focused on the same screen (the exact same point).
Via electronic control of the projectors, these individual images are then reassembled-in an extremely cumbersome way-into a chronological sequence.
The formula “one projector per frame” thus gives rise to something that at least rudimentarily (and inevitably very inaccurately, due to the lack of precision of the mechanical devices) suggests a motion picture. The film soundtrack emerges as a byproduct – the mechanical clattering of the projectors changing slides.

Plan & Publish Your Photography

Plan & Publish Your Photography

Undertaking a personal project – it could be an article for a magazine, a book, a website, an exhibition or a commission – offers photographers an opportunity to focus their energies and ideas and broaden their horizons at the same time as developing their art and craft. This book, which aims to be both practical and inspirational, will take them through the thought processes and planning that must be undertaken before work commences and stressing the self-discipline that must be maintained if the final objective is to be successfully achieved. It also offers a wealth of first-hand advice based upon the experience of the author and more than 20 featured photographers. The book is heavily illustrated with relevant examples from project-based practice, captioned with quotations from the photographer about the genesis of the project, its objectives and realisation. The featured photographers are a mix of commercial, fine-art, documentary and funded photographers from the UK, USA and mainland Europe. Illustrations are in both colour and monochrome and selected to be relevant to the topic and tone of the section they appear in.
