Muybridge was the man who famously proved a horse can fly. Adapting the very latest technology to his ends, he proved his theory by getting a galloping horse to trigger the shutters of a bank of cameras. He invented the zoopraxiscope, a method of projecting animated versions of his photographs as short moving sequences, which anticipated subsequent developments in the history of cinema.

American Night (2009) is a homage to the medium of film and a reflection on the construction of fictional narratives using cinematographic and iconographic references. A five-channel film installation shot on a Sergio Leone film set in southern Spain and on the Canary Islands, it is one of the most complex works to date by the Berlin based artist Julian Rosefeldt, who has made a name for himself with lavishly produced multi-screen exhibitions.

You are invited to a Saturday club devoted to mapping 250 locations in Britain that might each accommodate a 21st century new town.

A season of regular events where architecture meets cinema, curated by The Architecture Foundation.
This September Oxford Castle Gardens will host a series of classic cinema blockbusters from Wednesday 22nd to Sunday 26th – so while there’s moonlight, and music, and love, and romance, let’s face the silver screen and dance!
Hit and Miss is an installation containing a number of elements that explore municipal urban and suburban architecture and landscape design, drawing on familiar structural forms from Britain’s much-maligned post-war developments.
