«Motion and Rest»

«Motion and Rest #5» (2002) is the from a recent series of works in which each work displays the abstracted walking movement of a disabled person walking. Using techniques of very low resolution, the gait of each person is isolated from other personal characteristics and represented on a 768 pixel panel. One starting point for these works was Muybridge, but unlike Muybridge, the clothes and hairstyles and gender and age etc. of these figures are gone. Only the gait remains.
