Jim Le Fevre is a genius. This is incredible!!! A little tweak to the shutter speed on his camera and Le Fevre’s turntable transforms into a perfect Zoetrope (invention which uses the persistence of motion principle to create the illusion of motion). Enjoy.

“The zoetrope was invented in 1834 by William Horner and uses the persistence of motion principle to create the illusion of motion. It consists of a drum with an open top and is supported on a central axis. A sequence of hand-drawn pictures on strips of paper are placed around the inner bottom of the drum. Slots are cut equidistant from one another around the outer surface of the drum, just above where the picture strips were to be positioned. As the drum is spun, the viewer(s) can look through any slot on the wall of the device and see a rapid progression of images.” – Animation Wiki

Video of the Day: “Life is a Dance” by Sebastian Linda

Incredible energy in the filming/editing of this dance video by artist/filmmaker Sebastian Linda. Visual style is very similar to Leonardo Dalessandri’s “Watchtower of Turkey” (featured here) but I’d say it’s a much better fit with this type of content. Check out “Life is a Dance” below!
