FULL TURN

Full Turn explores the notion of the third dimension, with the desire to get out of the usual frame of a flat screen. For this, Benjamin Muzzin’s diploma work at the ECAL/University of art and design Lausanne mainly consisted in exploring and experimenting different devices for displaying images, trying to give to animations volume in space. The resulting machine works with the rotation of two screens placed back to back, creating a three-dimensional animated sequence that can be seen at 360 degrees unlike any other type of screens. Due to the persistence of vision, the shapes that appear on the screen turn into moving kinetic light sculptures. Those animated figures seem to float in the air, like one single intangible bright stream evolving through time.
