Back to the Future

Isn't this video cool? It's a composite of time lapse photographs by early photographer Eadweard Muybridge. I think it's so neat that his stop-motion photographs are now able to be put back together to create very early motion-pictures..

Here are some of his works (1880s), which you may recognize, and which I love for a reason I haven't put my finger on. Also of note, he influenced Sol LeWitt early on... a fascination with process?

Ok and lastly, going forward in time again, can you see how Muybridge influenced Duchamp's Nude Descending a Staircase (1912)?
