Elke Reinhuber: „Secret Detours“
Secret Detours engages the audience with overwhelming vistas in a full spherical presentation, encompassing the viewers from all angles.
The movie short is set within a lush Chinese garden, adapted from the great traditions of imperial landscaping – in the Yunnan Garden in the West of Singapore. Four dancers, dressed in the colours of the cardinal directions, examine the spaces, the paths and the detours of the green scenery. The 360° video relates to the experience of being surrounded by mythological creatures and their traces inside the garden. As the beautiful layout of the grounds is composed from a range of intersections with multiple meandering paths to choose from, the omnidirectional video invites similarly to explore the atmosphere between an exquisite selection of trees, shrubs, bushes and pieces of architecture.
