Split Second!

The Morning News recently featured the excellent work of Barbara Probst. In her series “Split Second”, Probst utilizes multiple cameras to capture the same exact second from different viewpoints. She is interested in the authority given to a lone photograph versus the idea that there isn’t just one reliable representation of a particular moment. “What happened” is open for interpretation.

Exposure #39: NYC, 545 8th Avenue, 03.23.06, 1:17pm

I love the exact details each diptych or triptych is given.

Exposure #34: NYC, Central Park, Umpire Rock, 06.14.05, 6:01pm

Exposure #37: NYC 249 W. 34th Street, 11.07.05, 1:13pm

Read a great little interview with Probst and see more of her work here:

    Here you go Jeff:

    Summary:
    Get a laptop (prefably pc)
    Mostly done with Canons, but apparently Nikon has some software too. Use manufacturer utility and sync all cameras to PC clock.
    Set all cameras to same channel and frequency and to fire off an assigned trigger.

    Place camera’s and fire.

Sunwheel Made Up of Hundreds of Gold Plates

Moradavaga9

Portuguese-Italian collective Moradavaga have built a shimmering sunwheel for the annual Festa de São João do Porto (Festival of St John of Porto) in Portugal. Measuring eight meters in diameter, the piece is the result of hundreds of gold plates, fitted together in such a way that they move independently according to changes in wind and light, as well as rotations manually controlled by passersby. See more images and video of the reflective installation below!
