THE KRIKNL-O-TRON

 

I am compelled to push the dimensional limits of current media formats. To do so I will cerate new production technologies and display systems. These new systems will require new physical interfaces and the ability to offset their power requirements thought alternative means.

My goal is to create a device that demonstrates my philosophy in a cohesive and interesting way. My proposed solution is the Krinkl-O-Tron, an interactive immersive environment composed of three interrelated components: a cylindrical rear-projection screen or cyclorama, a slit-scan camera and a human-powered carousel, designed to create, display and interact with the imagery generated by large-format slit-scan photography.
