Popped and Kernels are two new photographic strips created for this viewing at the Festival. I originally built this Zoetrope for an exhibition in 2007 and now it occasionally reappears in special places. Here's a chance to spin it and go out to the movies and watch some amazing animation.
The Zoetrope is a pre-cinema device that creates a visual effect of an animated image. The mechanism is a drum containing slits and a set of still images that when turned in a circular fashion creates the illusion of motion. This viewing device was invented by William George Horner in 1834 and originally was called the Daedatelum.
A huge thanks to Sven Bonnichsen, festival director, and Gretchin Lair for the invitation!
