gps-video scape

stéfan piat works already for some time on ways of placing different video clips of a specific real city space in an interactive, collage like interface. In his work the audience is invited investigate the recorded city-scape in a way that one could compare with moving through spaces in computer games. As he mixes in different times of the year, encounters with by passers and animals, footage of his own footsteps, his work results in a remarkable poetic and surrealist experience of space. To develop his work further, he worked on the technological development of a tool that will be able to make collages of video clips in an spatial arrangement organized by actual GPS recordings made during the shooting of the clips.
