christopher draeger - schizo (redux)

Gus Van Sant's Remake of Psycho (1997, color) of Alfred Hitchcocks’ Psycho (1960, black and white) is the most elaborate and precise remake in cinematic history: a conceptual art piece from Hollywood.

In this film Draeger layers Gus Van Sant’s "Psycho" remake and Alfred Hitchcock’s original version completely over one another.
Draeger about this work: The film superimposes one film over the other digitally, thus creating a double vision: the "Psychos" become "Schizo". It looks like one of those 3-D movies only that there are no glasses to reconstruct the image — it remains schizophrenic.
