Summary PAN & ZOOM take the effects inscribe in the global language of cinema and turn them into performative and participatory image-making apparatuses. Jondi Keane & Kaya Barry’s installation invites visitors to collaborate in the construction of the images in order to re-explore relations between media technologies and embodied experience. The result is an expanded, amplified and dilated experience of the performative power of image-making and image-viewing. .. PAN activates an accumulating collection of moving panoramic images – provided by Kaya Barry and PSi Fluid States participants from around the world – that one may interactively inhabit. The visitor manipulates relationships between an image projector mounted upon a dolly-track and a ‘trackpad’ that scrolls the projected panorama. The live event of constructing-perceiving panoramic tracking shots open up in ways that expand sensory experience beyond usual peripheries. ZOOM co-opts the ‘dolly-zoom’ effect in cinema, wherein the camera zooms in while moving backwards, or zooms out while moving forwards, resulting in the image expanding to amplify an intense moment of realisation. Keane pulls apart the double movement of the camera effect by himself performing the pulling back and forth of a moving wall as backdrop. Moments of realisation are created between visitors who take up camera operation and as an improvising actor’s role, to accompany Keane’s durational wall moving. An updating collection of short videos were made over the exhibition period shown on one of the installation screen
