Summary This film re-animates stereoscopic images of Melbourne from the 1920s. Technically the film makes a statement about how each new iteration of moving image technology reclaims artifacts and gestures from the past. Such an archeology enables the viewer to approach these images in new ways. Further, just as the image has become unstable so have our beliefs. Living in the Past recycles Jethro Tull’s lyrics to indicate that we no longer understand the political situation we live in. This work researches the nature of stereoscopic vision and tests out how easily small changes to an image are picked up up at the centre and periphery of an image. In this way it is involved in research into pattern recognition.
Notes This anmation flips between two related images at 25 frames a second to create a stereoscopic effect.
