Glass slide image by Eadweard Muybridge, 1880s This essay is based on a paper the author presented during the Symposium Dumb Type – The Birth of New Media Dramaturgy at Freie Universität Berlin in April 2013. It focuses on Lovers (1994) – the first moving-image installation work of Teiji Furuhashi, viewed within the framework of the histories of immersive moving-image projection environments involving human figures in performative movement. Alongside Lovers, it examines a film-projection experiment, The Birth, shown at the Expo ’70 in Osaka involving the work of Tatsumi Hijikata. The final part of this essay extends back to 1893 to look at the originating event for all projections of moving-images within specially-designed, enclosed spatial environments: Eadweard Muybridge’s project to create the first-ever space for the projection of moving-images to public audiences, through the construction of his ‘Zoopraxographical Hall.’ read more
