VIRTUAL VICTORIANA: ROOTS OF 3-D
Stereoscopic devices of the 1800s were used for entertainment and educational purposes. Flat postcard images of exotic locales and architectural wonders were transformed into three-dimensional visits via elegant hand-held stereoscopes. These simple devices are not unlike the cardboard Google glasses that were recently distributed by the New York Times. Important 20th century tools such as 3-D aerial maps are directly related to these Victorian diversions.
See these old and new tools at a small exhibit at the UC San Diego Library (Geisel West, 2nd floor) during Winter Quarter 2016.
The exhibit includes stereoscopic books of interest from the Library's circulating collection, tracing current virtual surgery and modern 3-D motion pictures back to these earliest novelties. Devices on display are simple but effective: original and re-issued stereoscopes, Google Cardboard viewers, old-school 3-D glasses, early Bakelite "view-masters" and, of course, many Victorian Era stereoscopic postcards.
BLACK FRANCE FILM FESTIVAL
At the Black France Film Festival in Paris, Scott premiered his new live score for Josephine Baker's Siren of the Tropics with African drummer Gene Perry and pianist Andrew Infanti. Professor Bennetta Jules-Rosette, a Josephine Baker scholar, introduced the film.
THE MAN WHO
Inspired by, but in no way a conventional stage adaptation of, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Oliver Sacks' best-selling collection of case histories about the neurologically impaired. For New Village Arts Theatre's production, Scott's soundscape complemented a superb ensemble of four actors through this adventurous journey of the mind.
