shutterless projection

Dear Frameworkers,

I'm curious if anyone has heard of an experimental film from the 60s -
70s that was intended to be projected with the shutter from the
projector removed. I know Sharits made references to doing this in one
of his essays (in the Film Culture devoted to him from 1976, or was it
78?), but it wasn't clear if he did this publicly or "in this studio,"
so to speak, just as an experiment. But I seem to recall that there was
someone else who made a film specifically for a modified projector sans
shutter. Any ideas? And, if this is something that is being done now by
anyone, I'd love to hear about that, too.

Thanks in advance!
