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.
