Movie Mincer (2004)

"Movie mincer show" is lowtech and multimedia performance where an old soviet mincer is used as a laptop-connected device to manually generated video streams (mincer > laptop > beamer > screen). Movie mincer allows to show motion pictures by turning the mincer's handle reviving and paroding the atmosphere of the first performances from the very dawn of cinema era. Each movie represents a set of JPEG (or WBMP) pictures projected in series which corresponds literally to the "moving pictures" definition. No special video-software is required. Edition of 5.

All mincemovies are demonstrated in silent mode, soundtrack is an extra feature which is generated separately (DJ assistance is recommended). Movie Mincer has the original old soviet design (1972) created in Izhevsk Ironware Plant which produced mincing machines as well as internationally known fire-arms.
