Pocket Cinema is our recent project, based on slide projectors from analog era, formerly known as Lanterna Magica. The projectors, modified by rotating devices, display specially designed slides blended with extra shapes and colors. We often combine this light effect with digitally animated projection.
We started to explore the concept of multisource visual performance during the art residency at Filmverkstaden in February 2019. The audiovisual setup for Pocket Cinema gives us the possibility of perfoming synaesthetic improvisation /Aga – VJ and Maciek – DJ/ as well as building freestanding installations. Furthermore, it can be used as a unique light-tool for stop-motion animation.
