This featured the first public presentation of my Chrono-sculptures work-in-progress. Presented at the That Art Exhibits’ conference in Brussels on 13th October 2016.
100 years after its publication, Anton Giulio Bragaglia’s manifesto, Fotodinamismo futurista (1913), seems in many respects still relevant to the debate on motion and representation of movement in photographic images (Shaw, Vanvolsem, 2012). If we can enlarge its scope to other photographic techniques (Alternative Processes, Slit photography, Stereo Photography, Photographic Abstraction, etc.), the photo dynamism manifesto also seems to contribute to an understanding of the experimental contemporary photography.
With this study we want to demonstrate that the original manifesto has more potential than what the Bragaglia brothers realized with long exposure times. Starting from our own results, and with the current technologies and knowledge in mind, we have come to a new manifesto of a dynamic photography anno 2016.
