Once a month the Magic Lantern Society publishes a newsletter called ‘New Light on Old Media’. You might think that members of the Society would only be interested in historical matters relating to the Victorian heyday of the magic lantern. You’d be wrong. Many artists and performers around the world have rediscovered the techniques used for early projection and creating the illusion of movement and incorporate them into their work. Also, the projection of digital imagery onto buildings has become an art form in its own right. New Light on Old Media provides a fascinating glimpse into this new world. If you would like to see previous newsletters, you can do so here.
