Joshua Mosley’s impressive stop-motion animation, featured in the 2014 Whitney Biennial, depicts a 1907 tennis match set at the Château de Fontainebleau in France. Set in a miniature reproduction of the court as it stood before its 1990 renovation, the video seems to follow its own interests during course of the gameplay, with the camera mirroring the ebb and flow of a casual spectator’s attention.
