Summary "This volume seeks make an intervention in the fields of film studies and visual culture by examining projection as a pivotal element in the continuing technological becoming of media systems. The chapters come together to paint a picture of projection that incorporates a range of practices across time and space. From studies of traveling projectionists in early 20th century Scotland and modern-day Uruguay to considerations of the (almost) lost mediums of the slide tape and the magic lantern, the authors invite us to consider the varied nature of the technologies, apparatuses, practices and histories of projection in a holistic manner. In doing so, the volume departs from the psychological metaphors of projection often employed by apparatus theory, instead emphasizing the performative character of the moving image and the labor of the various actors involved in the utterance of such texts"-- Provided by publisher.
