Phantasmagoria

Phantasmagoria An exploration of Victorian image projection and early cinematic technology. PHANTASMAGORIA is a pilot project at the Dalnavert Museum that explores the history of film, photography, video, and interdisciplinary media art practice and engages audiences through art installation in the context of a historical, Victorian home. Featured artists: Danishka Esterhazy, Noam Gonick, Irene Bindi, Aston Coles, Andrew Milne, Doreen Girard, and more! HISTORICAL BACKGROUND: The Victorian era gave rise to the invention of photography and the beginnings of early cinema. One popular means of display for early imagery was the phantasmagoria show – an exhibition of projected images, which evolved from the magic lantern projections first seen in the early 1800s. More than just a display of random images, the ghostly nature of the medium invited phantasmagoria shows to sometime use macabre themes to create exciting and uncanny optical illusions.
