Cover title. Signed and edition by the artist, in pencil. Eight-panel accordion book. "Muybridge Sequence was inspired by the work of the 19th-century photographer Eadweard Muybridge, who devised a system for photographing, on glass-plate negatives, the locomotion of humans and many other animals. This was a precursor to motion pictures. For this book, I was exploring the wide variety of image textures that could be achieved by means of etching, using a range of acid-resistant materials to make the printing plates. The book consists of three joined printed sheets, plus printed covers. Each letter of the title page is enclosed in a compartment, to echo the sequences in Muybridge's work. Printed on the back cover is text that I wrote as a commentary on the imagery of the book's moving horse." -- Artist's statement from NPL Artist's file. "... shifting its weight through the succession of shadows and light... in acquiescence to the surrounding wind, to the sound of its body moving through time... marching, on a mere membrane of glass, into uncertainty..." -- back cover.
Muybridge, Eadweard, 1830-1904.
