Elliot Schultz: Embroidered Zoetropes

Elliot Schultz created this series of embroidered phonotrope discs as an installation project in order to encourage viewers to engage with animation physically.

Six slipmats were created, each with a different animated sequence embroidered onto the surface. Designed to be played on a standard turntable, the illusion of movement is activated when a strobe light illuminates the discs in sync with the embroidered frames of animation.

Visitors to the installation were encouraged to interact with the turntables and discs. A set of additional discs were on display and could be un-packaged and played.
