Film description

After Media Magica I – Film before Film, Nekes continues his exposition of pre-cinematographic visual media in Beyond the Image, this time focusing on perspective and light. The artist examines such inventions as the camera obscura, first a source of games and entertainment as far back as ancient Greece, later providing artists with the device of anamorphosis and a source developments in the understanding of perspective. The film also looks at the fascinating story behind the development of shadow theatre in ancient China and the form’s enduring popularity in a number of Asian cultures today.
