WHAT IS THIS?
This work is a first part of the stereo video project. The figure of dancer in each frame is a hidden object of stereo image. Dancer is visible when its viewed in the form of normal video, but if to focus for viewing stereo images, the frame area gets volume, we see the ghost of a dancing girl in stereo space. In my childhood such stereo images seemed magic, we decided to revive them.
Sound design of this work is on the same root as well with the help of binaural recording technique. With this technique recordist uses an artificial head or his own ears to capture sonic reality, the microphones are located as close to ear membrane, or to place where it should be on a dummy head, as it is possible. Then, when the sound is played back in headphones, one can hear exactly what a sound designer heard while recording the ambiences. This creates an illusion of aural depth and effect of presence, that are principally very close to the illusion of third dimension, created by stereo imagery. It helps viewer to feel the place, that one can see on the screen, to be more involved in the process of creating an image of reality, that now can exist between artist and viewer, with a help of both of them.
So better dress headphones if you want to got the magic trip
First time to audience project was shown in exhibition “New Aesthetics: The constancy of the internal principles ” in NCAA Yekaterinburg with diptych “Stereo Dance / Walk” December 12, 2013 — January 22, 2014
Well exactly, what is a stereogam?
A stereogram is any image that, through one of several techniques, is able to convey the experience of depth perception to the viewer by means of stereopsis for binocular vision. Originally, stereogram referred to a pair of stereo images which could be viewed using a stereoscope. Nowadays, there are many other methods to display stereoscopic images.
And what about sound?
Binaural recording is a method of recording sound that uses two microphones, arranged with the intent to create a 3-D stereo sound sensation for the listener of actually being in the room with the performers or instruments. This effect is often created using a technique known as “Dummy head recording”, wherein a mannequin head is outfitted with a microphone in each ear. Binaural recording is intended for replay using headphones and will not translate properly over stereo speakers.
