Pestera Ialomitei

Site-integrity performs Ialomitei Monastery, an Orthodox Christian temple located in the Moreni commune in Romania. Working in collaboration with the monastic community it was agreed that anything above the altar could be filmed during the Eucharistic service. A free-standing motorized rig was constructed response to the site, allowing the camera to face upwards for the entire film while the motorized mast, slowly moved down. The frame of the camera slowly reveals the ceiling dome and architecture of the space, as the perspective alters so does the perception of the space. The recorded footage is then projected back onto the ceiling using the same motorized rig allowing the film representation to map the real architectural site drawing our attention to the symbolic readings.
