Tamás Waliczky :: Sculptures [1997]

On the basis of fleeting everyday movements and gestures such as walking, jumping, waving, etc., I built in the computer three-dimensional sculptures. I call them »time crystals,« for they preserve in frozen form brief moments in an individual's life. These crystals exist simultaneously alongside each other in space, and a virtual camera can observe them from any desired location. By travelling through the time crystals, the camera can re-produce the original movement, but from a diverse range of perspectives and at varying speeds.
- Tamás Waliczky -

The computer animation was designed for the music-theatre scene »Die Feinde« by Mesias Maiguashca, which premiered as part of the »MultiMediale 5« at the ZKM | Karlsruhe on Oct. 31st, 1997.
