Man, there is something inexplicably magical about moving images. GIFs are currently living large as the forever-looping medium of choice, but the ol’ timey zoetrope is having a bit of a renaissance.
We’ve already seen it applied to pottery — but now the concept gets a cool spin on this limited edition vinyl 7-inch.
Dan Hayhurst and Reuben Sutherland of “opto-musical agglomerate” Sculpture created the cool kaleidoscope for Plastic Infinite. The animation reveals itself only when viewed with a strobe beating at 25 flashes per second or if it’s filmed at a rate of 25 frames per second.
So mesmerising. Super neat. More zoetropes! [PSFK]
