Muybridge’s work used sequential images to appear to freeze motion. By placing a grid behind some of his subjects, he created a body of work which has been since adopted as an artist’s reference.
Using projected light, this series inverts that aesthetic.
Some of the work draws directly from the sequences Muybridge captured, and others use new forms of movement.
All images are taken from a single viewpoint, using modern cameras with technology likely impossible to have imagined when Muybridge was alive.
The resulting images reinterpret his work, and create a new way to envisage movement and the human form.
