THE ARTS OF PROJECTION / 31′, May 25, 8.30pm,
Two works that explore the event of projection in its physicality, framing cinema in a synchronic relationship with other lineages pertaining to the arts of the screen, from phantasmagoria to slide projection. The history of the combined efforts by natural magic and optical science in defining the phenomenon of light is directly performed on the screen, while the act of recording involves the context in the workings of the apparatus, incorporating the site of the screening as an active agent: a mise en abyme that leaves the mechanical performer in the solitary enjoyment of its own re-production.
