Figure Studies

 

Figure Studies by American artist David Michalek applies the technology of high-speed HD video toward captu- ring scenes and subject matter reminiscent of the famous Eadweard Muybridge and Etienne-Jules Marey photo-studies of human movement. Both of these bodies of work, which constitute some of the greatest achievements of 19th century photography, are also considered early progenitors of cinema.

 

Figure Studies was developed with the collaboration of Harvard biologist, Dan Lieberman. 

 

Figure Studies de l'artiste américain David Michalek : une incroyable oeuvre visuelle tournée à 3000 images par seconde... Un rendez-vous hypnotique dans lequel les corps en mouvement s'imposent dans un ralenti exceptionnel et invitent le regard dans une suspension du temps.
