Keech, Christopher (2013) Kinetic Screens: Can the use of a Kinetic Screen be utilised as a medium that enables an audience to view projected content. Masters thesis, University of Huddersfield.

This thesis explores the application of what is best described as a kinetic projection screen and its use within a performance environment. It examines the kinetic screen’s application within performances over centuries of development, from the use of the Watchman’s Lamp (Heard, 2006), a device used to create shadows, to the modern day. How can this form of projection viewing be created and delivered within a performance? Is there initial evidence to indicate an alteration to the way in which an audience views the content on a kinetic screen, such as physical engagement, opposed to a static screen?

This thesis analyses theatrical theories and interviews with Arts practitioners and companies, who already have, or currently are applying kinetic projection viewing within their work. Research within this thesis has been collected through practical examination, illustrating the development, construction and demonstration of a number of kinetic projection screens.
