On its way along the Bosporus, the border between the continents of Europe and Asia, an NITC oil tanker of the VLCC class gets into a space-time abnormality. The skyline of the megalopolis Istanbul is drifting away in the background turning into a multidimensional hyperspace structure with infinite expansion. Undisturbed by this phenomenon of vanishing civilization the ship continues traveling to nameless regions ahead.

In this work the spatiotemporal coordinates of the audiovisual footage are transformed. The reorganisation of space and time results in another continous representation of auditive and visual objects captured from our real environment although it establishes a completely abnormal artificial reality. As our contemporary conception and perception of space and time develops according to accelerating cultural processes the work especially reflects the alteration of spatiotemporal correlations.

audiovisual installation with three-channel video projection

Crude Carrier was initially realised as an installation consisting of a three-channel video projection and stereo soundtrack. Although there are visually exact connections between the video channels, the spatial structure is variable. Accordingly, the installation has been repeatedly adapted to new conditions in the context of various exhibitions.
