Miyamoto Musashi (via likeafieldmouse)
"Like his contemporary Eadweard Muybridge, Marey, a physiologist, was interested in the science of human movement. By 1882, he had developed a single camera method that he called chronophotography, which allowed him to make images of human and animal movement. His camera was the forerunner of the motion picture camera.
Marey’s chronophotographs were some of the first images to illustrate the exact process of body movement.”

Sam Hsieh, One Year Performance 1978-1979 (Cage Piece), 1978-1979
There’s the temptation to see Mr. Hsieh as a political prisoner or as a fanatical devotee of some religion. But mainly his work fits squarely within performance art’s peculiar and extreme explorations of the human condition. What’s most tangible about the “Cage Piece” is the almost palpable immensity and emptiness of time, nothing but time, of life as the filling of time. Mr. Hsieh carved a notch for each day in the wall. (He didn’t consider it writing.) He said he spent the time staying alive. (via)
