a video and sound installation in an elevator
video - Ursula Scherrer
sound - Kato Hideki
Ursula Scherrer and Kato Hideki are playing with the awareness of the elevator as a space beyond its functionality.
The passengers are surrounded with a poetic collage of images shot in the elevator itself, manipulated and taken out of context, and then projected back into the space.
Tone generators are used to create an ever-ascending sound that resonates in the space, enhancing the experience of the crawling images.
