[rift]  is a video installation that allows visitors to circumvent the temporariness and two-dimensionality of video, moving through recorded time by navigating physical space. Despite the vast variety of spaces accessible by recorded video, they only exist to us in small slices of time, and only through the two-dimensional display of a flat screen. [rift] attempts to free the viewer to move through past time.

[rift] is a collaboration between  Doron Altaratz, Eric Socolofsky and Scott Fitzgerald
