√Čtienne-Jules Marey & Georges Demeny

Marey & Demeny both photographers and inventors in France, working at the same time as Muybridge (and perhaps even more pioneering!) established a programme of research which was to lead to the creation of the ‘Station Physiologique' where they would use a variety of methods to visually record and study various kinds of movement. This was all going on at the dawn of film and many of their inventions were precursors or direct ancestors of the standard film camera and projector. They also recorded some images of sound , data and movement as light which is what I am interested in (see this post on early sound visualization/ photoacoustics)

Live Performance

So me and Dale played live on tuesday, here are some video and audio shot by Anne.
Dale plays his cassette tape images as scores that are also instruments, I am generating audio from my modular and video from DIY circuits and a fed back video mixer. I'm playing solo in London on Saturday here .









Film Preservation

Forgot to post these photos from some amazing training I did. If anyone wants to let me look after their video art, computer art or abstract animation I would be more than happy to help.
