Fragments of a Tesseract, is an adaptation of Hollis Frampton’s 1973 essay, “Eadweard Muybridge: Fragments of a Tesseract.” In this text Frampton references images throughout the history of photography which relate to Muybridge’s pioneering work in moving image sequences and projections. Frampton also suggests that Muybridge’s obsession with the stoppage of time is in fact entangled with the murder he committed in 1874. This frame-by-frame animation created in Photoshop presents every pictorial reference made in the essay while foregrounding perceptual phenomenon generated with still imagery
