Exchange Fields

Interaktive Videoinstallation, 2000
Sammlung Museum Ostwall, Dortmund

Bill Seaman produced the video installation Exchange Fields in the year 2000 especially for the exhibition vision.ruhr, which was shown at Zeche Zollern II/IV in Dortmund.
Thirteen sculptures enable the visitor to access and blend various video sequences through physical interaction. On the central projection screen impressive scenes from the choreography of the Dutch dancer Regina van Berkel appear. This poetic focus on physical effort is accompanied by motifs of industrial energy supply, which link the work to the Ruhr region.
For the new presentation of Exchange Fields, basic conservation measures were required for the complex technical equipment, which were realised under the direction of imai – inter media art institute, Düsseldorf, in cooperation with Cologne Institute of Conservation Sciences/University of Applied Sciences.
