Homage to Eadweard Muybridge (1994)
NOT RATED · 2min · Short · 1 January 1994
David Hanson edits together 11 separate photo series done between 1877 and 1885 by Eadweard Muybridge to make 11 short films. Most are of women moving: upstairs, downstairs, setting down a jug, picking up a shirt and a child, pouring from a jug, throwing a baseball, jumping from rock to rock, hoping on one foot, and sitting down. One is of a child carrying flowers to a woman. The clips run from three to seven seconds each. We see from two angles the woman jumping from rock to rock and the woman sitting, and we simultaneously see the front and back of the woman who's hopping.
