The Wizard of Oz in 5829 Offset Frames

The Wizard of Oz Experiment is a creative video installation by Dennis Neuschaefer-Rube featuring the famous 1939 film. He writes,

The video installation “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.

The 2-minute video above gives an idea of what the installation is like. It’s interesting seeing how the colors change throughout the film.

    Because some artists like to experiment.

    It took you the full two minutes to realize how bad this was going to be? Maybe you’re the fail.

    I want my two minutes of life back. Actually, I fast forwarded. It was still boring.

    Mute the computer voice, then play The Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd. Now it’s awesome.
