Picturing Motion: How Movies Began in Syracuse is a presentation that
delves into one aspect of the Persistence
of Vision project. I had a fascination with the pre-cinema
device known as the Mutoscope (1894) before I moved to Syracuse in 2007 and
rented a photography studio at the Gear Factory on the Near Westside. By chance,
a couple years later I discovered that the Mutoscope was invented in
Syracuse--in fact, on the site where my studio was located. Incredulous, I made
artwork in response (Eggbeater Mutoscope,
2010). In 2014, after living in
Seattle for two years, I returned to Syracuse as Artist-in-Residence at the
SALTQuarters (also located on the Near Westside). During my residency, I
researched the Mutoscope inventors in depth and uncovered an inspiring story of
four creative minds that made Syracuse a part of film history lore. Their
success inspires me to move forward with the invention of my own optical
device, a patent-pending stereoscope called the TwinScope Viewer. Picturing Motion: How Movies Began in
Syracuse tells the story of these Syracuse inventors who fought the odds
(and Thomas Edison) to bring photographs to life. One image displacing the next
is the persistent blink of light upon darkness.
