This all-media exhibition aims to arouse the spectator through works that address all characteristics of our physical awareness, and create an environment that explores the physiological methods of perception.

Persistence of Vision: The Illusion of Motion in the Age of Muybridge

July 14, 2010, 7 p.m.

When Eadweard Muybridge began experimenting with serial photography in the 1870s, moving pictures were child’s play. By the time he died in 1904, this phenomenon was well on its way to becoming a prominent global industry. In this illustrated lecture, Bernard Welt, Professor of Arts and Humanities at the Corcoran College of Art + Design, reviews the rapid development of the movies as new technology and artistic medium.
