EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph, titled "Plate 544. Artificially-Induced Convulsions; A, B, C, While Lying" captures a moment frozen in time by the renowned photographer Eadweard Muybridge. Taken in 1885 as part of his groundbreaking series "Animal Locomotion" this print showcases Muybridge's pioneering work in capturing motion through sequential photography. In this particular image, we see three women lying down on a surface while experiencing artificially-induced convulsions. The composition is both intriguing and unsettling as it explores the boundaries between art and science. Each woman's body contorts with spasms and seizures, creating a sense of raw vulnerability that challenges societal norms surrounding nudity. Muybridge's meticulous attention to detail is evident in every frame of this stop-motion sequence. Through his scientific approach to photography, he sought to understand the complexities of human movement and capture it with precision. As we gaze upon this photograph today, we are reminded of its historical significance as an early precursor to motion pictures. It serves as a testament to Muybridge's innovative spirit and his impact on the development of visual media. Displayed at the Addison Gallery of American Art at Phillips Academy in Andover, MA, USA, this print continues to captivate viewers with its fusion of artistry and scientific exploration. Its presence within the gallery speaks volumes about our enduring fascination with movement and our ever-evolving understanding of the human form.
