Instead, the mural uses a 'time line' loosely based on a film spool - an interlock that old projection rooms would deal with - and describes the passage of time from the invention of light at the beginning of the universe, through Aristotle's ideas about the after image to the mechanics of film, engineering, the pioneers and inventors; the background staff, builders, sparks,people who are essential to the making of movies.The line weaves and dances its way through time over the walls to end at our contemporary digital age.
