    A Magic Lantern Data Projector

    Electronic Visualisation and the Arts (EVA 2015)

    London, UK, 7 - 9 July 2015


    Mark Hursty & Victoria Bradbury


    The Magic Lantern Data Projector allows a performer-participant to build sculptural glass forms that are projected, then algorithmically processed. The device re-envisions magic lantern slides as transparent, multifaceted three-dimensional glass boxes. The projected image is a palimpsest of coloured transparent glass forms (Figure 1). Servomotors position the boxes in front of a camera lens, which uses software to translate the projection into numerical data.
