Time-lapse Video of Historical Photograph Being Recreated by Maisie Broadhead

Artist Maisie Broadhead graduated the Royal College of Art in 2009 with a degree in jewelry but has since become known for her fine art photographic parodies where she creates modern interpretations of historical photos. She also has fun ideas about what to do with your extra feet of extension cords, so you know. As part of an exhibition at the National Gallery, Broadhead and filmmaker Jack Cole were commissioned to create this video depicting one of her interpretations of a 19th century photograph shown here:

At the gallery the video will play in close proximity to the actual photograph taken in 1844 titled Lady Elizabeth Eastlake (which bears an uncanny reseblance to actress Kristen Schaal, right?) by Scottish photography duo Hill & Adamson. (via it’s nice that)
