Matthias Flügge, Raum, Orte der Kunst (Berlin, 2007), pp. 312-3
Drawing upon the extensive photographs, drawings, blueprints, and ephemera that comprise the CCA’s Forth Bridge Archive, Appelt studied the engineering and construction of the Forth Bridge, devising a highly systematic plan for its documentation. After first taking still photographs of the full span, he employed a 35mm motion picture camera that took individual 1/125-second frames. These film stills were then arranged into grids based on a complex numbering system corresponding to the bridge’s railings. Together, the 8 panels, each with 39 single-frame photographs, create a ‘cinematographic-photographic scan’ of the bridge that can be read horizontally across the panels, but also from top to bottom, like a scroll.
Forth Bridge—Cinema. Metric Space is represented in the collections of the Centre Canadien d’Architecture and the National Galleries of Scotland.
