Christian Ziegler :: rickshaw bangalore [2006-08]
With »rickshaw bangalore«, Christian Ziegler continues his series of interactive films. This interactive work explores the temporal dimension of places and of the experiencing of places: a video tracking system enables the visitor to navigate video footage like in a time radar and to immerse himself in individual pictures from the flow of passing images showing the constantly changing city of Bangalore. In this dynamic cityscape, places and streets do not function as geographical points of orientation anymore, but are only temporary constructs.
