Lumière Brothers - The Serpentine Dance (c.1899)

Brilliant. The Lumiere Brothers filmed this in black and white, and then hand coloured (probably with little paint brushes) each frame of the film. You can see the full movie here.


Claire Morgan: Sculpture and Installation ART from BELFAST

on Facebook

Claire Morgan was born in Belfast, North Ireland in 1980 and she is now living and working in London. Her art is really fascinating, recalling something between sculpture and installation. With obsessive precision she builds an hanging solid made by a lot of little “atoms”, little thistle and dandelion seeds, leaves or fruit flies. Every atom is fixed to an invisible string. When the viewer walks behind this suspended sculpture, the installation is moved by the air and magically the strings are opened like the curtains of a stage, showing the real work of art. Inside the solid there is an stuffed animal, freeze in one of its natural movement: you can see a crow falling down died or a barn owl flying with its triumphal wings.
