The Mutoscope, a popular source of moving image. Hand cranked reel of photographs would be lit within, played one after the other giving movement to the scenes.
Dubbed, "what the butler saw" the content would tend to be based upon the notion of voyeurism, spying through the keyhole. Women undressing, readying for bed.
This practice is something I plan to draw inspiration from. The hand crank interactivity, would be an interesting process to apply a more digital consequence to.
