Created by Henning Marxen, Crossvision is a series of video art sequences of recognisable yet disorienting sceneries that combine the popular slit-scan capturing technique with a specially designed camera slider. The video sequences are just as true or false as any conventional video would be. However, by rearranging the dimensional planes they no longer simulate the human sensory perception, instead they rearrange pixel data taken from a tracking shot where no visual information was added or lost in the process.
"Modern philosophy deems it impossible for man to ever achieve an objective grasp of reality. So, in today’s popular culture, TV and social media all focus lies on comparing the individual perceptions of shared experiences. Sometimes, however, a reminder is needed that even the impressions we can agree upon are deeply subjective and specific to the human race." – Henning Marxen
