Lucy Skaer, 2011
In Film for an Abandoned Projector Lucy Skaer further explores her interest in the relationship between sculpture and film; between the machine and the resulting psychological space created by it. Skaer was inspired to develop the project when she learned that Leeds was the primary producer of cinema projection equipment in the mid twentieth century. Through its neglect, this precision optical instrument has slipped from the mainstream to become marginal, allowing different images and agendas to inhabit this usually commercial format.
