interactive road movie
2 channel video, interactive control via movable monitor

application software: Christian Ziegler, Torsten Ziegler
linear navigator: Jeffrew Shaw

    In 66movingimages Ziegler has installed his journey as an interactive road movie on Route 66. Thanks to the linear navigator, the road from Chicago to Los Angeles becomes the over-arching spatial interface. The motorized screen, mounted on an 11-meter long rack, can be controlled by the viewer. When the monitor is in motion or stopped, what you see are spatial and temporal images from a filmic map. When moving, the film reproduces the spatial image metamorphoses on channel 1. When it is static, you see the scenic/documentary takes from Channel 2. The viewer navigates right through to the single-image level of the film. Here, »moving images« are images which the viewer moves.
