Today we can find many images that are similar, dealing with the same topics, representing identical places…

To Dada is a nod to the famous chronophotographic work of √Čtienne Jules-Marey and Eadward Muybridge. Inspired by their experiments, To Dada reveals an animation made from images lifted off various websites showing a profile photograph of a galloping horse. The rapid succession of these different photos creates the illusion of a galloping horse in motion.

Some of the images in the animation.

Despite the differing nature and origin of these images, the illusion of movement remains the same.
