"Animopticum" is an exhibition, educational and entertainment project on optical toys and cinema and animation history. The word "animopticum" consists of two parts: the anima - from the Latin word "soul", and optics - the science of light.
Spinning, glowing, reflecting, distorting and deceiving perception of scientific instruments in the nineteenth century were widely used as toys and entertainment, and have led to cinema and animation. Stories about how the picture came to life, are interesting to researchers, professionals and spectators. And today, when working with video and animation is part of a growing number of professions, we have much to learn from history.
