ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONIST CINEMA: KEN JACOBS / NERVOUS MAGIC LANTERN FESTIVAL
ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONIST CINEMA: KEN JACOBS / NERVOUS MAGIC LANTERN FESTIVAL
January 22-24
Ken Jacobs has long been a restless innovator, and his rebellious projection performance apparatus known as the Nervous Magic Lantern is a development that would not have been out of place in the pre-cinematic era of prestidigitation and exotic attractions. Working without film or electronics, the Nervous Magic Lantern uses lightweight fans and an exterior spinning shutter  along with the hands and creative mind of an active projectionist  to fill the screen with moving 3D forms that can be seen from every possible angle, no special glasses required.

This Nervous Magic Lantern Festival, curated by the ensemble diNMachine, will feature an incredible array of live performances from some of the most daring musicians working in New York today. Each artist/group will take the stage for a 20-minute set, during which Jacobs will project live with the Nervous Magic Lantern system. Each evening will also feature an immersive video installation created by artist Ursula Scherrer, as well as the film RE: ENACT by Ron Amstutz.

For Ken Jacobs's extended discussion of the Nervous Magic Lantern system, visit anthologyfilmarchives.org/film_screenings/kenjacobs
