The artwork "TIME" (2018) is playing with humans’ perception of the world that surrounds them through concepts of optimism and pessimism. It is executed as an interactive digital installation, which merges footages of rural countryside and densely populated urban areas. The viewers have full control to decide whether the vision will be calm and harmonic or chaotic and unclear, as they can adjust the character of the scenes and sound in real time.

BACKGROUND: The view of the world varies deeply even among individuals who live in the same location and conditions. Some see it as a neat place to live in, others as a mess. Some recall the past with nostalgia, others look forward to the future, yet everyone is stuck at present. The "TIME" combines these, and lets the viewer take a position - quite literally, as since Version 2 the installation changes as the audience moves in front of the artwork.

Version 1

Screened on a CRT TV, remotely controlled by a custom smartphone app to switch between the scenes and to manipulate the level of distortion.

Version 2

Projection with motion sensing operator; the scenes and sound are deformed according to the position of the viewer.

Version 3

Advanced v2, displayed on a flat-screen TV. It comes with extra scenes, more distortion patterns, and it allows multiple viewers to take a part - each person causes different effects.
