Expanded Cinema Workshop | Apparatus and Methodology

  • 121 Studios 211 King Street London, ON, N6A 1C9 Canada (map)

Presented in partnership with the London Ontario Media Arts Association (LOMAA).

In this workshop, media artist Alex MacKenzie will present a closer look at the original engine of expanded cinema: the projector. Specifically, participants will explore how to work with 16mm projection devices to allow an extension of their potential and a re-purposing of their function.

Discussion and examination of the various elements of projection: light, lens, focal plane, film gate, speed, shutter, motor, bulb, and screen will all be explored with live examples and an up-close and hands-on approach.

The work of contemporary media artists as well as historically significant artists will be discussed. Participants will be given the opportunity to try out various techniques, and will leave with a better understanding of how these elements work both separately and in tandem, as well as with a demystification of the primary instrument of the motion picture.

20$ / 15$ for LOMAA or UnLondon members and students.
