Eric Dyer: Zoetropes

Eric Dyer, artist, filmmaker, experimental animator, and educator, loves pioneering interesting and unique zoetropic projects.

'Copenhagen Cycles Journey (Midnight Moment)' features 25 zoetrope-like paper sculptures, comprised of a photo-collaged reconstruction of a cyclists travels through a fantastical interpretation of Denmark's capital city.

In a more recent project, dubbed 'Baldwin Geotrope', Eric experiments with an 80ft wide simple phenakistoscope image etched into a field and filmed from a rapidly rotating drone.

A quick scan of Dyer's website also hints at tests with a hot air balloon and an ambitious zoetrope tunnel in which to immerse viewers... Interesting stuff!
