Volker Kuchelmeister: City Jam

  • ©, Volker Kuchelmeister, City Jam

Artist Statement:

    City Jam is part of the Running the City exhibition. Kuchelmeister discusses his work City Jam and the immersive qualities of the video and technical aspects employed to create a panoramic experience. City Jam is an interactive, expanded cinema installation that reconfigures the gallery space into a vertiginous, theme park environment. The work takes the viewer on an immersive ride through some of Sydney’s iconic landmarks, such as Bondi Beach, the CBD and Sydney Opera House. Accompanied by a fast-paced sound track form Australian 80s indie-punk band XL Capris, the semi-circular projected imagery is exposed to glitches triggered by the presence of spectators in the space.
