[ISEA2009] Artist Statement: Geoffrey Alan Rhodes – 52 Card Psycho: Deconstructing Cinema through Mixed Reality, 2009

Artist Statement

Mixed media, projection

The 52 Card Cinema project is an exemplar of the unique architecture of cinematic pieces mapped on to the real world, made possible by Augmented Reality technology. The concept is simple: 52 cards, each printed with a unique identifier, are replaced in the subject’s view by the individual shots that make up a movie scene. The cards can be stacked, dealt, arranged in their original order or re-composed in different configurations, creating spreads of time.
