Embroidered Zoetrope Animations – Elliot Schultz

Since posting about pottery phonotropes I can’t get enough of physical zoetrope animations. Check out these amazing embroidered zoetrope animations by Elliot Schultz.

The 2013 installation involved the creation of 10″ discs embroidered with sequences of images that fit on standard turntables. Each piece was displayed with a standard strobe light that effectively brought the animation to life. The precision of the machine embroidery coupled with the texture of thread makes these really special to watch.
