Hydro Poles Shadowing (after Muybridge) 2002/2010

In a humorous reference to the pioneering fast-motion photography of Eedweard Muybridge, Hydro Poles Shadowing is a sequence of eight photographs taken from the same spot every hour on the winter solstice (shortest day of the year). As the sun makes its way across the sky, the pole’s shadows “run” across the building, a simple indicator of the earth’s movement through space.

Originally photographed in 2002, this work was finally printed in 2010.

This work can be seen as a precursor to the durational video Torture Box (145,071 kms in 1:21:03 @ 1676 kms/hr).
