Analog Animation With Digital Tools
I am working with the Shaper Origin and a wood lathe to create an ancient form of animation called the Zoetrope. When the piece is spun under the flashing light of a strobe a series of inlayed images will create the illusion of motion on the surface of the vessel.
My talk will cover a brief history of zoetropes, an overview of the Shaper Origin, and my process for making the piece. A video will accompany the presentation to more completely explain the process.
