Part of 1997 IMPAKT Festival



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.
