"The wooden lightbox: a secret art of seeing" is the new work of Canadian artist Alex Mackenzie. It is the first of a cycle of films that reflects on the early development of cinema and long forgotten ideas about moving images. In this live performance he uses a self-built hand-cranked 16mm projector. This "work in progress" is presented in ten chapters with a varied speed, according to cranking more quickly or slowly. All images are hand processed and contact printed.
