With his piece Projectors, artist Martin Messier turns an array of 8mm and digital projectors into an audio/visual experience.
He explains of using the old-fashioned machinery, "These old objects constrain me, which is quite important when we live in a time with all these tools accessible to everyone. These objects give me the framework that I need; they become my instruments, my inspiration, and my conceptual guide. The whole idea is to give ordinary, everyday objects a second life so they become magical. Traditional tools (musical instruments, for example) are instruments leading you to a musical way of thinking, that take you somewhere else completely."
