The Magic Lantern Data Projector allows performer-participants to build sculptural forms that are projected, then algorithmically processed. The device re-envisions magic lantern slides as multifaceted glass boxes. Servomotors position these in front of a camera lens. Software translates the projection into numerical data.
This collaboration expands the potential for cooperation between glass and electronic art, combining Hursty's work in which molten glass is poured into bespoke waterjet cut press-moulds and Bradbury's research into the performativity of code.
We will showcase the data projector while inviting others to bring along projection devices to share.
