Rebecca Hackemann’s Future Landscapes

I came across this wonderful art installation via the New York Stereoscopic Society. As part of the Chinatown in/flux series, these sightseeing binoculars (similar, perhaps, to those used to advertise Up) depict future iterations of the landscapes upon which they are fixed. I really love the idea of the binoculars being capable of looking beyond (temporally) what they should be able to magnify for the viewer.

Much of Hackemann’s other work similarly deals with the unique and bizarre capabilities of stereoscopic images, emphasizing surprising placement. I also love the way that her public installations invite and mandate such intimate spectatorship.
