The Muybridge installation is a study set out to capture temporal change in 3D.
A three-step sequence of a bird spreading its wings is reconstructed and sculpted into T-Shirts. As the change in the wings' position is a function of time, each wing's plumage is reduced to polygonal form, modeled and rigged into successive arrangements to portray the spreading motion.
This study leans on Eadweard Muybdridge's photography work in the late 1800s, with which he pioneered in the field of capturing animal and human locomotion. Challenged by a bet whether all four horse's hooves are off the ground at the same time during gallop, he conceived stop-motion photography and later on the Zoöpractiscope, which turned still photographs into dynamic projections.
With the Muybridge installation, shape and fractional motion are interpreted through jersey garments. The T-shirts capture a movement that happens in the bat of an eye and perpetuate it by material augmentation.
