In the Blink of an Eye

In the Blink of an Eye


Gallery One & Two: 9 March 2012 - 14 October 2012

Our world is constantly in motion. Since the earliest cave paintings, people have been fascinated by the representation of movement. This exhibition explores the relationship between media and movement, revealing how artists, photographers, inventors and scientists have responded to the challenges of capturing and simulating movement, creating images which transcend the boundaries of Art, Science and Entertainment.

In the Blink of an Eye is part of imove, a Cultural Olympiad programme in Yorkshire. imove has been funded by Legacy Trust UK, creating a lasting impact from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games by funding ideas and local talent to inspire creativity across the UK.
