Review by

Video meets Muybridge. Peter Bode's Video Locomotion begins with a series of still photographs which start to move across a background of stills of the same image, a man performing a forward hand leap. By adjusting the horizontal hold, Bode makes the foreground stills move faster and faster creating, in essence, a video zoetrope and produces the illusion of movement. An interesting video experiment and neat little road marker in the history of visual media.
