Stillmotion: Images from the Olí Paramount Theater
Old film stills, just a few millimeters in size have been transformed into oversized scrolls offering a porthole into the images of yesteryear. These snippets of film were salvaged from the projection room of the Paramount Theater, long after they once stood in splendor in the heart of Newark. The images capture odd glimpses of the Theaterís former glory. Amateur talent night from the 60ís, the action of 70ís kung fu, and scenes from the original movie The Fly have been frozen in time, enlarged, and suspended above the viewer in Natalie Giugniís installation entitled, Stillmotion: Images from the Ol' Paramount Theatre.
