In exploring the screen based moving image consideration of Muybridge is inevitable. In this work a small homage is paid by complicating the motion with the use of a pathetic mechanical horse and establishing a system that presents a screen view based on that cinematic moment of passing the family farm from a moving vehicle (train?) while the family pet (horse?) tries to keep pace, with the outcome that if the screen is viewed as a static object, instead of as the window of a moving vehicle, the horse is running backwards.
