Parallax: Binocular Video Installation by Incredible Bob

Incredible Bob‘s hacked VHS viewfinders connect two crossed CCTV cameras via createdigitalmotion.com:

Parallax is a binocular video installation made out of two hacked VHS viewfinders crossed with 2 CCTV bullet cameras. When you look at it, your eyes become crossed, so you see your left side on the right eye and visa versa.
The viewfinders are miniature TVs with small cathode tube. Usually they have 3 wires: 2 for power and 1 for signal. Above the screen is the lens to focus the image. I got it for EUR 10.
The idea for this work was to see ourselves watching an artwork from a different perspective, in the manner of a Peeping Tom or nickelodeon, as well as involving the audience in the piece. Silver/mirrored surfaces just amplify that effect. The piece also has an iconoclastic element.
The Parallax installation was presented on group show Inter(atr)actions at Dom omladine Gallery, Belgrade.
