ANIMALOCOMOTION refers to the work of Eadweard Muybridge on the decomposition and analysis of movement through photography at the end of the 19th century, the first step to the invention of cinema. ANIMALOCOMOTION stages a character half-man half-animal in a theatrical and spatial gesture. At the edge of the invention of the animated image, this character operates the magic of movement recorded on the sensitive plate, creating hybrid animal visual representations or experiencing magic tricks as exits from the circus of yesteryear or a imaginary fable. We can perhaps distinguish in the light an elephant, a horse, an ostrich, a cow, a snake or a camel.
