zeitRaum challenges human perception by transforming images of a transient landscape into abstract shapes and movement into space. Form, time and stereoscopic depth become variable properties in this interactive visualisation. The project examines the implications of digital technologies, particularly in terms of the topographical texture of temporality. It explores how visual cues such as motion parallax, binocular vision and binocular rivalry effect the human ability to read and interpret depth in a scene.
The 3D depth in this visualisation is dynamic and is mapped to the proximity of a viewer to the screen. In this way, the scene opens up in if the observer approaches and gets shallower with increasing distance.
