The Muybridgizer [iPhone, oF, Events]

Commissioned by the Tate Britain and in honour of the eccentric man who proved that ‘horses can fly’, Theo Watson and Emily Gobeille with Nexus productions have created an iPhone app utilizing Muybridge’s technique to give iPhone users the chance to animate their own Muybridge-esque sequences, using custom-built ‘Muybridgizer’ app. Using the original principle of taking a sequence of still shots (in Muybridge’s time, by setting up a bank of cameras along a racetrack which were triggered by a galloping horse) the iPhone camera will capture a sequence of images which the app then allows you to manipulate frame by frame, treating the images so they are in a similar vintage style to Muybridge’s work and animating them. Sequences can then be shared by email or on Flickr, with any images uploaded to Flickr being featured on the exhibition’s microsite.
