Introducing the Eternalism – Ken Jacobs

SEEKING THE MONKEY KING, 2011

For years now, Ken Jacobs has been exploring the relationship between surface and depth. Beginning with his early experiments with the Pulfrich effect via the dual projection "Nervous System" to the use of 3-D digital technology, his works don't just fascinate due to their unsettling visual experiences but also due to the heightened sense of perception created in the process. In his "Introducing the Eternalism" program, the focus is on creating the eternal in space: "What can be seen is snapshots of things that move in depth and never repeat their movements, but continue them into space; without doubt, a depth without 3-D technology, which anyone can grasp with just one eye".
