The starting point for this project is the idea that “the spaces are as important as the words.” This title proposes that artwork objects in gallery spaces are as important as the thoughts, discussions and changes in thinking about the art object and gallery spaces that may occur and change over time. Alternatively the words are just as important as the spaces where we place works.

“panoramic-environments” & “Dilating the Event”


by Kaya Barry & Jondi Keane
PAN & ZOOM is an interactive installation in development for the Fluid States: Performing Mobilities PSi event in RMIT Gallery, Melbourne, Australia, in September-October 2015. It is comprised of two complimentary works: “panoramic-environments” by Kaya Barry, and “Dilating the Event” by Jondi Keane. Together the works become a space where images generated by PSi participants are dimensionalised and the usual modes of viewing are dilated. The two works expand the performative aspects of image-making and viewing through: expansion and intensification / perception and realisation.

“panoramic-environments” involves PSi participants collating audio-visuals to produce a moving panoramic projection. It is mobilised by a projector mounted to a dolly-track that participants can move, and a trackpad (digital input) which viewers can scroll the panorama with or against the dolly’s movements. It extends on the collaborative production of panoramic audio-visuals from the Fluid States North cluster (Copenhagen, June).

“Dilating the Event” involves the disambiguation of the famous dolly-zoom effect in cinema where the camera zooms in while moving back or zooms out while moving in, resulting in the image expanding to amplify intense moment of realisation. A wall is physically moved by a participant to move the camera, while another person operates the camera-zoom to co-produce the performative dolly-zoom affect.
