"Nimmerfall rear-projects interiors—crime scenes from the hit television series C.S.I. (Crime Scene Investigation)—onto walls strategically positioned to physically herd viewers through a corridor, out the other end and around the back of the installation to view this precariously positioned, filmic, architectural spectacle from behind. With each step, a new discovery is made and a new fallacy revealed. [...] Nimmerfall's installations physically encompass the viewer and intentionally fail to immerse, using the video content to alter the viewer's sense of space, perception, and time.
