Historical Berlin ZOOOM

The complex movements of people in Berlin captured in an old photograph. It is given life once again through artificial movement from panning across the image for a closer inspection. The once static people gain personality as it grants the viewer a more intimate look. Details into their personalities and strides are made clear upon a more scrutinizing look. The essence of their humanity becomes apparent as we focus on the individual instead of the picture as a whole. Lenght: 2 Houres

Thomas Seher is a composer and musician for film and theater. A few years ago he discovered the art of cinemagraphs and since then has been exploring the boundary between photography and film. His works decelerated movements open up a new perspective and invite observing changes. The motives are scenes, either real or staged, which gain a special artistic moment through they way the images are digitally processed. The continuous playback on the digital canvas provokes the impression of a smooth, ongoing movement. There is no cut, no change of perspective or camera panning - this is what makes it so captivating.
