I was excited by the new feature in OSX to change the desktop image for multiple spaces. Combined with the animation for the multi-touch gesture three-fingers-swipe to switch between spaces, I thought of filmstrips. I tried changing 12 desktops to Eadweard Muybridge photos.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t swipe fast enough to trick my eyes into thinking there was motion. A phenomenon known as Iconic Memory.
An interesting info-tid-bit is that Persistence of Vision was debunked in 1912, but it’s commonly still cited by film academics and theorists. Many contemporary scientists consider it a myth.
