Magic Lantern

Magic Lantern Studio is a space where a number of projects intersect.  They run visual art and puppetry workshops, put on performances and produce artworks, murals and puppets on commission. They are inspired by forgotten technologies and toys, particularly those of the pre-cinematic world.  

Take refuge from the digital avalanche for a moment and lose yourself in suspended time, making a toy theatre or diorama; relish the simple delight of early animation toys; say everything you ever wanted to say in the guise of a puppet, or gaze at a Magic Lantern slide for a window into lives once lived.
