Bicycle Zoetrope.



A fine example of taking a vintage concept and transporting it into modern times, using a little bit of inventiveness : by assembling paper cutouts into the wheels of bicycles, london-based graphic designer Katy Beveridge creates a zoetrope : a spinning device that typically produces the illusion of a moving animation from a series of static pictures. This zoetrope effect can only captured on film; to the naked eye, the movement of the wheels occurs too quickly and is perceived as a blur. Captured frame by frame, however, beveridge's snowflake-like designs produce captivating animated visual effects that mimic bobbling gears, growing plumes, and other abstract forms.
