Two spirited artists of the current generation join forces for an evocative audiovisual installation that nullifies time and distance, creating a unique experience for visitors.
LAPSE is an instance of immersion in an audiovisual environment formed long-distance travel through spacetime. Through the sonic compression of time, achieved via the use of a pioneering time-lapse audio technique applied by Stavros Gasparatos, this original installation features a co-occurrence of light, image, and sound that breaks the boundaries of realism and interprets life through the sounds that surround us. In this first collaboration between Stavros Gasparatos and Lars Jan, the public is invited to take part in a unique experience that draws its raw materials from the random, the perpetual, and the collective unconscious.
This work was commissioned by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) to be presented the 2020 edition of SNF Nostos; its debut was postponed due to the pandemic.
