This Zoetrope will have you mesmerized

IMG_0882

From a very young age, the illusion of motion fascinated me.

I would spend hours and hours destroying the books in my parents' library by creating crude, hand-drawn flipbooks in the margins. Pictured below is a rare 1890s sketch of my hands at work during the creative process.

This sort of activity helped set the stage for what would be a career-long pursuit.  I tinkered with countless pieces of art that would make up just a moment of entertainment for anyone willing to take notice.

We're all enticed by beautiful patterns, pleasing repetitions and a concisely-delivered story. Here are a few tales that are told in just 12 frames apiece. My favorite is the 3rd horizontal strip from the top. It’s the one of the man happily dancing in place, while passing his severed head to his clone, who does the same ad infinitum.

It is, as all of these are, simply beautiful!

And that brings me to the Zoeflix, which hits the nerve of what I love in so many ways.

1) It’s beautiful to look at and hold 2) It’s made of wood and not plastic 3) It moves and operates by my own force 4) It’s an artistic platform where I can make my very own 12 frame animations 5) It has a great history

The Zoeflix is essentially a Zoetrope device that, when spun, produces an illusion called the phi phenomenon. This is the optical illusion of perceiving a series of still images as a continuous motion when viewed in rapid succession. Read the rest
