3D or stereoscopy is a widespread technique in cinema to visually immerse the audience. Nevertheless, the technology does not seem to be being used to create more immersive stories. Stereonarrativity is an attempt at an artistic use of 3D technology.

In contrast to stereoscopy, where the two image streams vary only slightly in visual perspective, in Stereonarrativity the two image streams are utterly independent. Passive 3D goggles are manipulated so that half of the goggles only transmit the right or the left image to both of the respective audience member’s eyes. While the audience shares the acoustic layer of the movie, one can visually tell two tales; stereo-narrativity. The installation presents a movie giving an insight into the life of a dementia patient and a young woman. The audience can unlock a story greater than the sum of its parts by communicating after the experience. Stereonarrativity creates a fundamental need for collective consumption and exchange among the audience.


Stereonarrativity is the latest project by the Linz-based Krmpf Krmpf Studios whose work has been recognized and supported by u19 – Ars Electronica since 2006 and u19 – CREATE YOUR WORLD since 2011.
