The illusion of motion; persistence of motion
Eadweard Muybridge (1879) sets up a serious of cameras to photograph a race horse to see if at any time all four legs were off the ground. He did this for California Governor Leland Stanford who bet that, indeed, a horse got off the ground….
Stanford won the bet and Muybridge’s photographs were a precursor of motion picture technology (Zoogyroscope, 1880).
