Body cinema: Films by Etienne-Jules Marey – vintage motion capturing

02/1/2011

Tonight I’m gonna have a lot of pioneers on Body Pixel… when talking about body, motion and film, no doubt we can not miss one, and that’s Étienne-Jules Marey.

This scientist, chronophotographer and photography developer firstly started to explore human and animal blood circulation, and then switched to pulse, motion, body rhythm, and heart beating at the end of 19th century. His films are both, science and art of full caliber, now having a wonderful patina and vintage layer.
