Cinematographic Sculptures, the combination of sculpture and film will undoubtedly cause a stir amongst artists and public alike. The fact that film is basically a simple mechanical process means that the character of the works are remarkably different to video installations. The relatively longer history of film also means that there is a larger, quite unique body of reference material. The artists were inspired by precursors to cinematography, like shadowplay, magic lanterns, zootropes and the kinetoscope, and also refer to the works of pioneers Eadweard Muybridge and Etienne Jules Marey.
