Vancouver-based artist Alex MacKenzie has built his own ingenious hand-cranked device called The Wooden Lightbox using bits and pieces from projectors. He presents impressive cinematic performances drawing on ideas from techniques from early film. Tomorrow night from 7-9pm at VIVID, he will perform. 7 inch Cinema will also be on hand with music, cake and a selection of short films.
Earlier in the day, from 1-5pm there will be a workshop, Flashes of Light: 16mm Rayogram Contact Printing Workshop at VIVID. It will explore the potential of moving image rayograms, a technique whereby objects are placed on the surface of the film, exposed to light, and processed to negative.
The afternoon workshop costs £5, and the evening performance £2 on the door.
