Abstract:

  • Keywords: interactive cinema, expanded cinema, panorama, immersion, narrative space.
    Alberti’s Window v2.0 is a novel interactive cinema platform for the expression of stereoscopic 3D panoramic and multi-viewpoint spaces of representation, in which participants embark on an embodied journey of discovery. In this paper, the author outlines the conceptual and technical framework, exemplified through a work specifically made for this platform, the interactive cinema project Juxtaposition. An introduction to the history of immersive imaging, presentation modalities and innovators contextualises this work within the wider field.
    Intro
    Since Leon Battista Alberti’s first scientific study on perspective as an instrument of artistic and architectural representation, the term ‘Alberti’s Window’ has become a metaphor for linear perspective. Version 2.0 is an interpretation and extension of the conceptual ‘window to the outside’. It utilises modern technology and digital imaging to create a vision-machine, which allows for: the spatial correspondence between the real and the representational space, the expansion of the perspectival model, and an interactive experience where participants embark on an embodied journey of discovery.
