This is then and that was now
In 2015, Frank Trana and Ole A. Ekker, traveled to the scene of the world’s worst nuclear accident to form the basis for pixelthis
The artwork presents a visual proximity to the time of the accident and the lost moments. The idea is to mirror the photographs through a graphic technological view
from that moment “when time stopped.” The graphics, with its theoretical retrospect, forms a parallel between documentary and technology. The exhibition was scheduled to open 26.april 2016. 30 years after the accident.
The goal is to give people a feeling of bringing life back to the abandoned town of Pripyat, through the use of video in QR codes in each of the fotos/graphics.
Pixelthis displays a timeless Chernobyl.
