Cinema out of the Box!
In the mood for a movie? Try some people-powered cinema! Cinema out of the Box manages portable movie-screening infrastructure that has the capacity to project audiovisual materials anywhere on campus through bicycle-powered generators, low energy projectors and passive sound amplification. The project aims to create novel cinematic experiences in unexpected locations – on campus, on mountains, in pools, and beyond. Members of the project lead year-long screening series that experiment with the creative and technological potential of mobile cinematic equipment. Cinema out of the Box makes novel use of on- and off-campus space without requiring elaborate construction or infrastructural support, and its “pop-up” projections allow experimental collaborations and facilitate the spread of media arts to the campus community.
