Video installation
Künstlerhaus Graz, Austria
20.08. – 29.08.2010     

The project Urban Tomography shows a digital portrait of the city of Graz, recorded through the method of a cross-section and displayed as a video installation in the Künstlerhaus Graz.

The concept intends to create a „space-time compression of an urban space at one single point“. Along a straight line across Graz, on every kilometer videos are simultaneously recorded within one day. This videos will be displayed on a collection of monitors at the central position of the line – the Künstlerhaus Graz. The line of 10 km corresponds to the actually East-West extension of the city. The axis is north located by the points Künstlerhaus and Dommausoleum („Stadtkrone (crown) of Graz“). A section of the public space is transferred by sound and image into the exhibition space. The confrontation of 'micro and macro' or rather 'milieu and large scale' results in an audiovisual simultaneously city portrait „at the same moment of time“.

„A city is an endless summary of local points and elements, in one moment of time.“
(Markus Jeschaunig, diploma thesis 2010)

Film–Trip
On the 30th July 2010 from 4.00 – 5.15 p.m. 22 urban tomographers (camera operators) took place on 11 points across Graz (line) and recorded a precise and simultaneous city portrait in HD quality. Two cameras on each point recorded a static images to east and west to create a linear compression of the 10 km line on  a 24 m distance in the exhibition space. The visitor of the installation can explore a fundamentally element of that what city is, the simultaneity and its numerous parallel activities which are happening in the city every second.
