Zoetrope

A zoetrope is a device that produces an illusion of action from a rapid succession of static pictures.

how it works
How it works
  • It consists of a cylinder with slits cut vertically in the sides.
  • Beneath the slits on the inner surface of the cylinder is a band which has either individual frames from a video/film or images from a set of sequenced drawings or photographs.
  • As the cylinder spins the user looks through the slits at the pictures on the opposite side of the cylinder's interior. The scanning of the slits keeps the pictures from simply blurring together so that the user sees a rapid succession of images producing the illusion of motion, the equivalent of a motion picture.
