Artist Statement:


    Through The Time Tunnel is an artistic exploration of the scientific principles that govern time and space. This artistic interpretation of a time machine allows users to interact with past events through a playful interface. It is inspired by two facing mirrors that create infinite reflections of the present moment. Like an imaginary mirror, Through The Time Tunnel shows reflections of time from past to present in different time spaces. It uses a video camera, a green screen, and control buttons to record layered video sequences, and it creates a tunnel-like effect by stacking the recorded video images. The speed and direction of navigation within the tunnel are controlled by the user, providing a compelling time-based experience.
