Zoetropes

Zoetrope Pottery

Zoetrope Pottery

Artist Kenny Sing of Turn Studio first mapped out a series of geometric patterns on his computer, then carefully cut them out from a ceramic bowl before firing it. Once completed, spinning the piece on a potter’s wheel creates the illusion of movement.

Gâteau Gato

Gâteau Gato

Artist and pastry chef Alexandre Dubosc’s delicious looking cake doubles as a zoetrope, so as it spins, it reveals animated scenes of various feline friends, including Felix the Cat, Maneki-neko, and Catbus. (Thanks Rachel!)

4-Mation Zoetrope

4-Mation Zoetrope

A zoetrope machine that plays 3D-printed animations by spinning them on a disc in front of an array of LED strobe lights. The machine will offer interchangeable animation plates you can print like the fish-eating-fish and jumping frogs shown here. Coming to Kickstarter.

Light Zoetrope

Light Zoetrope

Artist Akinori Goto came up with an even more enthralling take on zoetropes. He uses 3D printing to turn two-dimensional frames into a donut-shaped object. It looks like an abstract piece, but it reveals its animation when hit with a narrow beam of light.
