Projected Light

On the Beginning and the End of Cinema - Performance by Arthur & Corinne Cantrill

San Francisco Art Institute

Australian filmmakers and publishers Corinne & Arthur Cantrill present Projected Light, a meditation on the end of the photo-chemical era featuring multiple film and slide projections, audio tape, and live performance. The Cantrills reflect on the imminent death of kinema—of projected light as an artform—by celebrating its essence: light, motion, physics, chemistry, and imagination. An homage to the early history of film and a recapitulation of the Cantrills’ 30-year career as experimental filmmakers, it challenges “the last filmmakers” to act now to ensure a future for cinema and filmmaking technologies before they disappear forever into the digital ether.
