"Ancient Cinema" is an art installation featuring recently discovered Roman artifacts from Zadar, Croatia, that turn out to be the remains of the world's first film projector. I am a Canadian artist, currently living in Austria, where I am working on an installation called "Ancient Cinema." The installation will debut at the Donat (a decommissioned 9th-century Byzantine church) in Zadar, Dalmatia, Croatia in June, 2012. "Ancient Cinema" takes the form of a speculative archaeological fiction in which recently discovered Roman artifacts from Zadar turn out to be the remains of the world's first film projector.
