"The genesis of the motion picture medium is recreated in this collection of films from cinema's formative period. More than crucial historical artifacts, these films reveal the foundation from which the styles and stories of the contemporary cinema would later arise. An animated rendering of Eadweard Muybridge's primitive motion studies (1877-85) begins the program, immediately defining the compound appeal of cinema as both a scientific marvel and sensational popular entertainment. This is followed by the works of Louis and Auguste Lumière."--Publisher

Helios : Eadweard Muybridge in a time of change by Philip Brookman( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in England in 1830, Eadweard Muybridge immigrated to the United States in the early 1850s and began his career as a photographer in San Francisco in 1867. He radically reinvented the aesthetic and technical capabilities of the camera and in doing so gave us a new way to conceive of motion, time, and space. Today, the impact of Muybridge's art can be found in many places, from Thomas Edison's kinetoscope viewer and Marcel Duchamp's Nude Descending a Staircase to the poignant paintings of Francis Bacon, the blockbuster film The Matrix, and U2's video for their hit song "Lemon." It is interesting now to imagine Muybridge's world, little more than a century ago, when our sense of time was turned upside down for good. Helios: Eadweard Muybridge in a Time of Change constructs a new understanding of Muybridge's innovations and demonstrates his influence as a pioneer of modern art. --Book Jacket

With a view to supplying the demand of art and of science students, it was decided to select a number of the most important plates which were in the work published in 1887 with the title: Animal locomotion (which contained 20,000 figures) and republish them on a reduced scale. The selected plates in this volume demonstrate certain facts which occur in regular sequence, with uniform intervals of time during the accomplishment of some act of motion thus enabling the phases which characterise the transition from one period of movement to another period to be leisurely studied
