What is PARALLAX?
»In a certain sense, the struggle for the third dimension is the entire process of modernity since, with the introduction of perspectival representation, a process was initiated which persists through to the present; in other words, we never cease endeavoring to transform the space in which we live into a recording space as well, namely, by dramatic means and by representation.«
Prof. Peter Sloterdijk
PARALLAX is a cooperation between University of Arts and Design (Karlsruhe/Germany), CIANT (Prague/Czech Republic) and M2F Créations (Aix en Provence/France) - together they investigate on the aplication of critical art practices.
BEYOND FESTIVAL 2012, an expert sympsium for stereoscopic 3D, involving pioneers and experts of future science and arts - marked the date of inception of Parallax.
PARALLAX regularly conducts symposiums, festivals, workshops, 3D films and artist-in-residence programms - feel free to join us there!
PARALLAX is an interdisciplinary and highly intercultural European project based on mobility-led research, artistic and cultural creation. It focuses on the encouragement of peoples’ creativity and free expression throughout the use of the latest S3D (stereoscopic 3D camera‘s) technologies. Parallax contributes to local people’s identity assessment and their own environment appropriation. At the same time, it bridges different cultures and sensibilities. The Parallax project participates in the promotion of new emerging art forms in Europe and their assimilation from the professionals to a wide audience. In order to pursue the circulation of artists, art works and cultural operators, co-organisers intend for their cooperation to be fruitful and give birth to a European network on S3D research and art production. As a key mission, the network will act as a European Observatory on art and new uses of the latest digital technologies, thus promoting the role artists play in the anticipation of social change and making the future technologies democratically accessible to the European individuals.
