Reynold Reynolds, 2009

Secret Machine

Secret Machine explores themes connecting art and science taking the 19th century scientist Eadweard Muybridge’s photographic experiments of motion sequences as a starting point. Reynold Reynolds reflects on the radical change in the understanding of Time and Space as developed in film and photography’s relationship to measurement, science, and the human body.

In this work, the film camera becomes another measurement tool. The intention was to make an art piece from the point of view of a machine, specifically a camera.

This work is the second of the Secrets Trilogy, a cycle exploring the imperceptible conditions that frame life.
