No. 5 – Unsupported Transit.

“This sculpture by Michael Brown uses small mirrors with a reverse cutout of Eadweard Muybridges galloping horse images. Light Emitting Diodes aimed at each mirror are quickly flashed, reflecting the image of the horse onto the frosted glass face of the Bell Jar. Illuminating the horses in the correct order and reflecting the images in the same place on the jar reanimates Muybridges’ galloping horses. For more information visit”  (info from YouTube page)

2004 LEDs, electronics, mirrors, vinyl, bell jar (55 x 18 x 18)

“Unsupported Transit” by Michael Brown was last rumored to be installed in the lobby of a residential building somewhere in San Francisco.  I don’t think I could ever get tired of  passing it every day to and from my apartment.
