Pocket Cinema LIVE
By KinoManual (PL)
Pocket Cinema is KinoManual's most recent project, based on slide projectors from the analog era, formerly known as Lanterna Magica. The projectors, modified by rotating devices, display specially designed slides blended with other shapes and colours. The creative duo (comprised of Aga Jarząb and Maciek Bączyk) often combines this light effect with digitally animated projection.
They started exploring the concept of multisource visual performance during their art residency at Filmverkstaden in February 2019. The audiovisual setup for Pocket Cinema gives them the possibility to perform synaesthetic improvisations as well as building freestanding installations. Furthermore, it can be used as a unique light-tool for stop-motion animation.
The KinoManual duo shares with us their live performance based on the setup for their Pocket Cinema installation, held at Künslerhaus within the context of the TRANSFORMATIONS Exhibition.
