To see this work in 3D viewers should wear stereoscopic glasses (or you could try crossing your eyes to join the 2 frames)
Bridge sets out to create a form of mise en abyme incorporating architectural, photographic, filmic and digital structures, all layered together within the same vertically layered representation of space/time.
Stereoscopic photography and an iron bridge (both developed in the 19th Century) are used to contain and fold together media spaces from the 20th and 21st Century. In traditional stereoscopic images the gap dividing two frames is spatial, representing the slight difference between a viewer’s eyes that creates depth of vision. But in Bridge this gap also has a temporal quality, the two frames share the same space, but are produced by different media (film & digital video) and are separated by over 40 years.
The bridge's curve gives the impression of a circular form that matches the looping action of figures endlessly passing through the distorted space. The film and video clips are of different lengths, causing the figures to interact in ever changing configurations within a hybrid space constructed by the viewer.
