Comics and the Critique of Chronophotography, or 'He Never Knew When It Was Coming!'
Scott Bukatman
Department of Art and Art History, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305, USA.
In the wake of Muybridge's and Marey's experiments in recording movement, comics quickly began to emphasize the depiction of continuous movement. Chronophotography mapped the kinetic body onto the regulated spaces of industrial culture: it was a means of revealing the body and a tool for its containment and control. Comics by Wilhelm Busch, Steinlen, Winsor McCay and others, however, mimic the fixed viewpoints and measured progress of chronophotography, but caricature the instrumental reason that supplied its motivation.
