To coincide and to celebrate the current Muybridge exhibition
, Tate Britian has announced the launch of
its The Muybridgizer App on the itunes App store.
The app allows iPhone users to freeze-frame the moving
world around them just as Muybridge did with subjects ranging from running horses to leapfrogging boys. In homage to the analogue Victorian beauty of the originals, users can Muybridge-ize their frames with grids and sepia tones, transforming their moving images into striking vintage-style pictures.
So, if you are inspired to take pictures similar to the iconic works of this early photographer, the app is available to download for free
for the duration of the exhibition. 21st century works can be seen here
Wondered what the great man would have thought of all this?
