3D-Symposium 2012 3D-Festival 2011
Autostereoscopic Design
Mark Blezinger

Paris-based photographer and director Mark Blezinger works in video and
photography since 2005 with high-precision autostereoscopic technology designed
by the French manufacturer Alioscopy.
He stages classical lenticular photographs containing 60 individual images edited by computer into complex film scenes providing unique depth effects. Glowing, mythological worlds in black and white. Windows into other realities.

This new Art form known as "photographic theatre" has been exhibited in a selection of European galleries and art fairs such as Athens, Basel, Berlin, Madrid, Paris, St. Moritz or Zurich since 2007.

Last year the first edition of 3D-Festival BEYOND at ZKM showed, under the name "French Connection", his lenticular photographies together with those of inventor Pierre Allio and his glass-free TV flat screens.

Alioscopy's creative team at this years BEYOND symposium is going to present a prototype of an autostereoscopic 8-view camera for the first time, in addition to a smaller installation of these 3D art pieces.

Along with European Sales Manager, Gilles Marcellier, they are going to show technical and creative possibilities of autostereoscopic cameras that are currently in the beta test phase, showing the results in temps réel.

Curriculum Vitae

Born in Baden-Baden (Germany) in 1962. After studying theatre and philosophy in Paris, Mark Blezinger worked as Assistant Director for Luc Bondy, Klaus-Michael Grüber, Peter Stein and Andrzej Wajda at Schaubühne am Lehniner Platz, Berlin. Using the theatre´s troop as models, he created his first photographic exhibition about facial expressions:"Soul Stiring" . In 1989 he moved back to Paris from where he toured as a theatre director and scenographer to several stage and theatre festivals around France and Europe. In parallel to artistic cooperations such as, for example, with Bob Wilson in theatre or Heiner Müller in documentary film, he works as a coordinator of Académie Expérimentale des Théâtres, writes a biography on Klaus-Michael Grüber and is appointed Head of Cultural Programming at the Goethe Institute in Paris.

He founds the Béla Compagnie in 1995 and begins working with digital images and new techniques of projection. As a result, he creates different video-stages for performances in theatre and opera. Since 1997, as director and cameraman for TV stations Arte, French and Swiss TV, he shoots documentaries and short films. Along with the creation and editing of moving image in TV productions, he creates multi-layered photographic theatre and "film-stills" as a photographer, that he morphs into lenticular images. His meeting with inventor Pierre Allio, who initiates him in the technics for autostereoscopy, has been crucial for this development. From 2005 he exhibits his 3-D photo paintings works regularly for different international galleries and art fairs. Currently he is continuing his experiments as a beta-tester with a prototype camera invented by Alioscopy, Paris.
