(p.83) 5 Grace Taking Form: Marey’s Movement Machines

Erin Manning

The MIT Press

This chapter focuses on examining those movement machines that have been developed by researchers such as Étienne-Jules Marey, to investigate the grace involved in movement of the human body. These machines were invented by the researchers to identify and reveal the invisible aspect of grace involved in movements of the human body. Different techniques of perception have been developed by researchers and used as new kinds of sensing machines to investigate and identify the grace involved in different modes of movement. The chapter also finds that these movement machines helped Étienne-Jules Marey to perform different kinds of measurements to prove his theory that movements involve a certain grace.

Keywords:   movement machine, human body, grace, sensing machine, measurement
