Crossing Art is pleased to present Joshua Spodek: Motion in Stillness a solo exhibition of the artist’s linear zoetropes; a unique medium that transforms still images to appear animated to moving viewers. Joshua Spodek: Motion in Stillness will be the largest solo exhibition of linear zoetropes to date. Following the opening, in fall 2011 Spodek, in conjunction with 18 art students and 2 professors from Parsons The New School of Design’s Art, Media, and Technology (AMT), will unveil the largest, digital linear zoetrope to date in Union Square.
Spodek explores the transcendental implications of the linear zoetrope. His work exposes new juxtapositions to the still and moving image, requiring the viewer to focus on momentary actions and movements often overlooked or missed. With the increasing speed in which the world runs today, time seems to disappear before our eyes. Spodek’s work poetically unveils this time acceleration paradigm by capturing the motion in stillness.
