Dissecting Muybridge Series
Dissecting Muybridge recontextualizes Eadweard Muybridge’s late nineteenth century chronophotography, to both critique and analyze the language of film through the immediacy of video. The work is divided into three parts that trails the moving image’s evolution into film, analog video, and digital video.

Technical details: Image processing utilized the Signal Culture studio during my Feb. 2014 artist residency, specifically the analog video Hearn videolab and modular synthesis for image and sound creation. The source material was created by making videos from Muybridge's photographs and custom code developed in Processing, then manipulated in After Effects and Premiere Pro.
