Video projector, video recorder, videotape, mirrored cylinder
In the installation Co-Verzerrung, the classical game of anamorphosis is transmuted into its own readable universe by means of electronic media. The video projection on the floor shows a distorted pan shot capturing a mountain panorama. The projection is superimposed by non-distorted topographic heights. Because of the repeated distortion in the reflection of a mirror cylinder located in the centre of the projection, the image sequence is reconstructed and therefore becomes recognizable to the observer.
Both distortions – the distorted projection and the rectified reflection – are interdependent and form a common body.
