A tension generating visual arrangement: rows of empty seats, which in their framing suggest an outdoor setting. This is the sole take shown in Björn Kämmerer’s 70mm experiment ARENA. However, a minimal shift in camera position seems to set the supposedly fixed seats in motion, and at the same time, topples a seemingly safe spectator position. We see what we see, but doubts still arise as to whether we can truly trust our eyes.
