"Tim Slice: UCA Farnham Public Lecture 2, Revenge of the Powerpoint

My second public lecture of the term at Farnham this week, this time was the musings of Tim 'Time Slice' MacMillian. His lecture was structured around the past, present and future of 'Array Camera' technology.

Tim studied at Bath Academy of Art and Slade school of Art, he first told us about his inspirations. He named Fox Tolbot's 1835 photograph as influential:

he also mentioned the origin of 'camera array' - Eadweard Muybridge – The Horse In Motion

Mac Millian is also a self confessed 'Picasso Worshipper' and admirer of Cubism he showed us a slide of the iconic Ma Jolie

He learnt about 'Simultaneity' and the work of Chevreul

in 1990 at Slade Tim developed is time slice technology using a circular rig with film inside, unifying Muybridge and his galloping horse with photo sculpture. this is a selection of Tim's work

Action Packs!

Filmed Maidstone Rugby Club's recent encounter with Tonbridge Wells on Saturday - Our 2nds coach asked me to film mostly the Maidstone action so I focused on our offense and defense. It was pretty hard keeping up with the play but was a good experience and would like to regularly film the teams games. I also experimented with shutter speed in preperation for our Commision Unit Shoot next week. I will post the Mustangs (Maidstone 2s) Vs Tonbridge Wells on the Maidstone RFC website and youtube very soon...
