75 Phenomenology’s focus on mobile percepts was also contemporary with physiological movement studies conducted by Étienne-Jules Marey. His work during the 1880s on graphing movement via chronophotography directly led to the synthesis of photographed motion: cinema. ”80 Historians of early cinema will recognize the haptic protrusion characteristic of early reception of the moving image, amplified in films such as The Big Swallow (1901) in which a man in LS advances toward the camera in a zoom effect, until his open Introduction 25 mouth “swallows” the camera, or Méliès’s The Man with a Rubber Head (1902), where a head seems to grow like a balloon then bursts, through means of a tracking shot in composite.
