A 24 hour projection of about 20 twin loops. Presented in a random sequence on the newly installed digital projector at the Norwegian Film Institute in Oslo. From Saturday 12.00 to Sunday 12.00, October 2002. The syncronised twin loops was part of the Ultima festival: www.ultima.no that year.
One large loop was projected onto the cinema-screen. Another, corresponding loop, in full sync, was displayed on a 17” CRT video-monitor, placed by the center front-seats, facing the big screen.
There were two syncronised sound loops. One “spot-sound” played out of two speakers next to the 17” monitor facing the screen, and a larger “bed of sound” on the surround loudspeaker.system in the cinema hall.
I somehow thought people in the cinema hall would wander in front of the seats to catch what was going on on the little monitor, but this did not happen much. If at all. Most visitors came in and found a seat to watch only half of the project.
We adjusted the placement of the 17″ monitor to between rows 3 and 4, but this didn’t help much either.
Outside the hall, by the exit of the cinema hall, were three iron beds with rough army bedclothing and two images depicting a continuous loop.
Middle of the night snack.
