Oeuvre de Patrick Rimoux 1996

Inaugurated 21 June 1996 to mark cinema’s centenary and to pay homage to Joseph Plateau. A glass half-cylinder (evoking a film spool) displays, on both sides, black and white stills from many movies from around the world. We’ve not checked the suggestion that the stills represent 100 films from 100 directors over 100 years.
