FOTO E VIDEO 3D… SENZA OCCHIALINI, GRAZIE!
The photos and videos are the result of a complex work process.They constitute a symbolic bond between the descriptive power of photography and the evocative world of art and archaeology, the ongoing search for new stimuli and tools of expression. The exhibition set up at the Domiziano stadium illustrates the bond between technological progress, represented by this innovative photography technique, and tradition expressed in all the magnificence of the locations it is hosted in. The element which gives the images the realistic power which marks them out is their volume: their three dimensional quality - not normally a feature of traditional photography - is, in this case, perceived by observers via relief and profundity, visible without the help of 3D glasses or other aids. We might define the photographs auto-stereoscopic as a natural evolution from classic photography, as it has gone beyond the limits of this discipline thanks to technological progress which has brought to fruition a historic intuition and a desire - bringing the vision of the human eye back into the image. It is thus not simply creativity and interpretation, not solely a ‘form of art’ like what went before it... It is a technique which responds to the strict rules of optics. The usual difficulties encountered on any photo set are supplemented in this case by those linked to the auto-stereoscopic tools and production processes. Every photograph is structured thanks to the interlacing of around 60 photos, each obtained by a different angle and elaborated via a range of software. The result appears harmonious and comfortable to the observer, thanks to constant research and development which has enabled its processes to be optimised. The fruit of this work is today presented as a solution to the artistic and cultural heritage dissemination and promotion activities and, above all, as an innovative support to museums and their ever more demanding visitors. Its potential has come to fruition in the creation of travelling exhibitions useful to showing finds and work where it is difficult to transport artefacts as a result of their fragile state or their size. The reproductions obtained with this new technology enable them to be freely used in other exhibition sites than the original ones.
After 30 years of exploring various worlds of creativity and visual arts, fabric designs, graphics, video photography and visual communications for companies, Rémy Verbanaz, began creating his own 3D photographic works in 2016. The optical process of these works is built around the concept of volumetry, relief and depth reproducing a three-dimensional vision mounted on two-dimensional supports. The long process of taking and making the photographs, often involving 60 shots for each photo, is painstakingly created, assembling diverse perspectives and interlacing them in order to obtain a final image, a process requiring experience and expertise. The work “Into Elements” creates a space where the bodies appear to float, producing an electrifying effect in the perception of depth, exalt hair, veils and fluctuating movements invoking a sublime state of grace transcending the essence of reality itself
