The analogue experiments are under way with the construction of a laser zoopraxiscope,  a 16mm projector based on a projection system from the 1800s by Edweard Muybridge repurposed with a LASER light source. The image and prototypes are being developed through conversations and collaborations with cultural specialist Dr. Vlad Strukov, the lovely people Oomlout, Prof. Ben Whitaker & Dr. Mike Nix of Leeds University School of Chemistry.  Upon proof of concept and final risk assessment, I will release the designs open source upon completion of the first cloud projections planned for early 2013.
