Giphoscope n° 25 | The Dickinson Experimental Sound Film

The Giphoscope n° 25 - with exclusive Emperador Dark Marble stand - displays an Animated GIF excerpted from Dickson Experimental Sound Film (ca 1894). This short film was a test for Edison’s “Kinetophone” project, the first attempt in history to record sound and moving image in synchronization. Unfortunately, this experiment failed because they didn’t understand synchronization of sound and film. The large cone on the left hand side of the frame is the “microphone” for the wax cylinder recorder (off-camera).

The Giphoscope n° 26 displays an animated gif excerpted from The Kiss, the first film sequence ever recorded of a kiss. We are in 1896, and the sequence was filmed inside the Black Maria, the first American film studio, in which the operator William Kennedy Laurie Dickson ran short film for Thomas Edison and his Kinetoscope.

The footage of the kiss, also known as The May Irwin Kiss, lasts about 15 seconds and documents the kiss between May Irwin and John Rice, in the final scene of the Broadway musical The Widow Jones.

The Kiss - one of the first films shown to the public for commercial purposes - provoked scandal and disapproval from the press. In some cases it was even called for the intervention of the police in places where the film was projected.

In 1999, The Kiss was deemed ‘culturally significant’ by the Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry of the United States.
