Lucy Raven’s Tales of Love and Fear is a cinema built for a single film, which contains a single image. The project comes out of research Raven conducted regarding the relationship of historical bas-relief carvings in the US and India to Hollywood’s contemporary obsession in 3D, and the outsourced labor used to produce the effect. This film is composed of a single stereoscopic photograph in which the right and left eye perspective are split across two projectors which counter-rotate from a custom built rig around the room.
Lucy Raven is an artist living and working in New York.
Tales of Love and Fear was commissioned by Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) at Rensaleer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY.
