It's been fertile ground for over 30 years. (see Millenium Film Journal No. 3 Winter/Spring 1979 - Independent Film in Pittsburgh by Lucy Fischer and Bill Judson).
The New Cinema Workshop was also the location of the "Film Chamber" which was a curvilinear projection
environment with a curved screen which gave the illusion of three dimensions
when films were projected onto the surface. The technique was developed by Willard
Van De Bogart and was exhibited at the National Film Board of Canada in 1969. Link to newspaper article on the curved screen inside the Film Chamber May 1970
The Film Chamber was mentioned in the book Arthropods:New Design Futures by: Jim Burns - It is in the category Man/Machine Media.
