Humans mount themselves on gigantic robots and enjoy being centrifuged through space. It sounds like science fiction, but it’s just what happens in theme parks. Machines with the power of tanks and the voices of demonic entertainers offer five minutes of anti-gravity therapy. An innocent attempt to escape this world, driven by 10,000 horsepower. Based on his childhood fascination with these powerful entertainment slaves, Till Nowak created The Experience of Fliehkraft. He collected footage from theme parks and enhanced it digitally to become seven fantasy thrill rides. As part of the artistic concept the original footage was recorded  with a cheap amateur camera. It was then retouched over months of  painstaking work and extended with computer-generated elements.
