Work from The Wizard of Oz Experiment and Book

“The Videoinstallation “The Wizard of Oz experiment” shows the movie “The Wizard of Oz” 5829 times side by side. The movies are arranged in rows from left to right and time shifted by exactly one second each. The video starts at the top left, with the first second of the film and finishes bottom right with the last second of the film. The projection is in a continuous loop that repeats every 98 minutes.

A computer voice speaks the whole subtitles of the film “The Wizard of Oz.” in a 68-minute loop.

In the book, “The Wizard of Oz”, all of the 140,000 filmstills of the movie are published. On 98 pages the images are arranged chronologically in rows from left to right. One page contains 1440 pictures which correspond to exactly one minute of film. So the page numbers also show the minute of the film from which the stills were taken.” –Dennis Neuschaefer-Rube
