Between 1966 and 1976, some independent filmmakers began to make works which questioned the mechanics of cinema. Expanded Cinema went beyond mere projection. This was the event of cinema -the space, the audience and the projection. The artists employed physical interventions in the cinema space, such as flashing light bulbs which illuminated the whole room, clouds of smoke which lit up the cone of light from the projector, and even the creation of mini-cinemas where the sense of touch, rather than sight, was utilised.
