Galloping Horses

Installation, 2022

In 1878, Muybridge succeeded in proving that a galloping horse briefly lifts all four hooves off the ground. These early series shots provided important impetus for the development of "moving pictures" and were therefore also the forerunners of cinema films.
The installation captures the surrounding by a webcam and plays back each frame with a time delay of 36 seconds !
36 seconds frozen in time.
