Line interlacing | Zeilensprung

Line interlacing, 1 channel video installation, 2001, 15 min. (loop)

The work "Zeilensprung" ( "line interlacing") shows the design of a media facade for a broadcasting corporation by the example of the "ARD-Hauptstadt- studio" in Berlin.

Every 48 seconds a TV-still is broadcasted live. A slowed down electronic beam simulates the process of line interlacing (PAL system).

Images, which are generated by the time delay, make past and present visible at the same time.
