Inspired by Muybridge's "Dancing (fancy), 1872-1885" studies in motion. According to Muybridge's daybooks, the model in these photographs is Kate Larrigan. She was one of only a few models with the graceful bearing Muybridge preferred for his work. This animation recompiles Ms. Larrigan's dance sequence on a stage for new audiences to enjoy.

Scope of work: Spring - Summer 2023
