Expanding Cinema


with Emmanuel Lefrant

@Clocktower
Copertino - Italy

free admission with reservation

*This workshop is already concluded. If you are interested in working with our artists to host another workshop with you, please contact us via email*




'Expanded cinema' is an elastic name for many sorts of film and projection event. It is notoriously difficult to pin down or define. At full stretch, it embraces the most contradictory dimensions of film and video art, from the vividly spectacular to the starkly materialist

In this workshop, media artist Emmanuel Lefrant from LightCone/Paris, will present a closer look at the original engine of expanded cinema: the projector. Specifically, participants will explore how to work with 16mm projection devices to allow an extension of their potential and a re-purposing of their function. Discussion and examination of the various elements of projection: light, lens, focal plane, film gate, speed, shutter, motor, bulb, and screen will all be explored with live examples and an up-close and hands-on approach.
