Turning the Crank: Crankie Art from Past To Present

Wednesday, Jul 17, 2013 8:00p
Empty Sea Studios Seattle, WA

Erkki Huhtamo, Professor of Media Archeology, UCLA, and author of Illusions in Motion, will talk about 19th century moving panoramas. The moving panorama (the predecessor of the crankie) was a long painting that unscrolled behind a "window" by means of a mechanical cranking system. They were accompanied by a lecture, music and sometimes special effects. Prof. Huhtamo's research has uncovered unbelievable stories about this forgotten part of our history that he will share. Prepare to be amazed!
