200x50cm, Acrylic on Canvas
The idea for this piece was to take a relevant historical artwork and modernise it.
Following the invention of the camera in the times of the Impressionism, I explored the studies of the instantaneous photographer Eadweard Muybridge, and the chronophotographer Étienne-Jules Marey, wondering how Edgar Degas paintings would look like with modernised technology.
