ZOOOOOM was originally created and presented as a video presentation on a specially equipped bus that was part of ’5′, a series of site-specific projects for the 2010 Winter Olympics. www.5.paulwongprojects.com
It was a moving audio/visual journey, passengers zoooom through the urban core on a magical mystery tour. Departing hourly participants experienced distorted and altered space created by real and edited time mashing fiction, non-fiction and abstract sources. ZOOOOOM into a moving cinematic view was not your usual guided tour.
ZOOOOOM is now available as a 2 channel video that can be shown on a moving bus, gallery installation, or screened theatrically.
Right Channel: Round Trip
Recorded in Vancouver, Round Trip takes you on a car ride that starts on Main Street, goes through downtown, the west end, Stanley Park, and then retraces its route back to Main Street. Composed as a visual journey, Round Trip makes use of video mixing mimicking the visual qualities of the club-sound experience.
