Screen Series

A stunning meditation on light and shadow, Screen Series functions on a number of levels, introducing the audience to the history and technique of the earliest cinematic cameras as well as allowing viewers to create cinema directly with their bodies. Six rectangles of pure white light react to visitors as they move between projector and screen, physically interrupting the beams of projected light. In Screen Series, Snibbe has developed a work that belies its technical complexity and brings the process of the earliest moving image photography into the twenty-first century. The work reintegrates the functions of image capture, development and projection by combining camera, projector and computer into a single light sensing and emitting apparatus.
