Three Dimensions of Film by Pim Zwier
Three Dimensions Of Time

Three Dimensions Of Time

Three moments in time are captured in three layers of coloured imagery shown simultaneously. Combined, the layers form normal full-colour images of the elements whichpersist through time. Simultaneously transitory elements – animals, people, machines – movethrough these scenes in single colours, leaving only a brief trace, as if they're memories or ghosts who have left behind their past, present or future. Some people have lived for so long that they become as stable as their surroundings. With dignity they become archetypes of themselves, representatives of traditions which are as much a part of the landscape as the buildings. 'Three Dimensions of Time' was inspired by the photography of Sergey Prokudin-Gorskii and was filmed in Kansk, Siberia.
