Egbert Mittelstädt (DE)
Biosphere's live visual collaborator for a number of tours has been the Cologne based Egbert Mittelstädt. His videos, photographs and installations investigate the principle of time as mangled by both subtle and extreme digital distortions. His image processing propels and warps movement through a series of slowly sliding, continuous beacons of elusive patterns and shifting structures. Acclaimed for his "Slit-Scan" meditations, he stretches the constants of space: by pulling motion out of shape while still remaining recognizable and time crawls forward in almost a pendulous, shimmering displacement.

Resume of the pieces:
URBAN HORIZON, a turbulent ride through different metropolitans like Moscow, Tokyo, Cologne, and San Francisco. The deconstruction of the footage is followed by a new spatial and temporal arrangement for the CineChamber.SPACE2SPACE (premiere at Mutek) shows in 7 scenes a short insight in the urban life of Ghana. In the tradition of the Panaoramic Theaters of the 19th century the spectator visits places, which Google Streetview never reached. Space2Space is Egbert Mittelstädt’s first full motion 360 degree production for the CineChamber, to be recepted like a bridge between worlds from Space2Space.
