Welcome to ZINEMATIK’s website.

This collection of instruments and artefacts, designed and built by us, is based on mechanisms originally invented throughout history in an effort to reproduce and preserve images of the world around us. Before the advent of photography and cinema, objects such as the Camera Obscura and the Praxinoscope – that may seem to have emerged from a magician’s bag! – were necessary steps to eventually arrive at the films and photographs we enjoy today. Our collection is interactive and addressed both to school children and to the general public.
