SLIDE MOVIE: a film sequence (35mm motion picture, 24 frames/sec.) is cut up and the individual frames are mounted as slides. They are then distributed among 24 slide projectors that are all focused on the same screen (the exact same point).

Via electronic control of the projectors, these individual images are then reassembled in an extremely cumbersome way into a chronological sequence. The formula “one projector per frame” thus gives rise to something that at least rudimentarily (and inevitably very inaccurately, due to the lack of precision of the mechanical devices) suggests a motion picture. The film soundtrack emerges as a byproduct - the mechanical clattering of the projectors changing slides.

Gebhard Sengmüller is an artist working in the field of media technology. Since 1992, he has developed projects and installations focusing on the deep background of electronic media, changing retroactively the timeline of media history and dissecting and recombining media technologies.
