Cauchy Horizons, Martine Stig
An ‘investigation into the language of science fiction cinema’. It presents pictures taken in four cities ‘on the verge of transition to capture glimpses of the future. Stig tries to mirror photography’s constitutional characteristic to capture the present for future use. Instead of using the medium as a tool to peek into history, she uses it to get a glimpse of the future. Researching Sci-Fi films – old & new – Stig noticed striking visual resemblance in how it is portrayed. Despite new technologies, conventions are evidently required to enable us to speak about our time to come. By categorizing Sci-Fi’s depicted subjects and camera positions, she learned the grammar of our future’s visual language.
