In my Communication: Time, Motion, Media class, the first assignment was to create a zoetrope. A zoetrope is a device that produces the illusion of motion through a rapid spinning of static pictures. It consists of a cylinder with cut, vertical slits on the sides, with a band of images in the inner surface. As device spins, the viewer looks through the slits at the pictures.

Here is my Photographic Documentation of my zoetrope:

Zoetrope: Full View

Zoetrope: Barrel View

And finally here is the Video Documentation of my Zoetrope and the animation:

And that is my zoetrope 😀
