Alexandre Noyer: The Secret of the Pins

11 November 2019


Via Beldomandi 1, Padova

Aula Spettacolo (third floor)

Alexandre NOYER


A conference for the course in History of Animation

Come and discover pinscreen animation!
The pinscreen was invented and created by Alexandre Alexeïeff and Claire Parker in 1930; only 2 examples remain in the world.

Alexandre Noyer has succeeded in recreating a pinscreen to perpetuate this little-known technique.

During the conference, he will explain everything about this “image-making” machine.

From research and design, to how to use it, you will know all the secrets of the pins. And you will even be able to test the pinscreen yourself!
