Performer: Carrie Beehan; Game design and installation: Clinton Curtis-Querci

“Scopiola” consists of three components: an installation, a performance, and an interactive game. Participants in the project are invited to view unfamiliar images through the nearly extinct nineteenth-century technologies of moviolas and stereoscopes. Visitors can also play a game that utilizes depth perception as a basis for ball-throwing.

Most twenty-first-century kids expect films to be in 3-D without having any idea where the concept originates. Inventor Charles Wheatstone’s 1838 stereoscope, which serves as the basis for contemporary HD technology and relies solely on natural light, employs the illusion of depth in an image for effect. Moviolas were conceived by Iwan Serrurier in 1917 for use as home movie projectors and are the precursors to home videos.
