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

“The Omega Project” by Rone

Rone continues his exploration of doomed and abandoned spaces with his latest immersive exhibition. “The Omega Project” sees the Melbourne-based artist setting up shop in a condemned suburban cottage in his hometown. Granted access and free rein before it’s torn down, Rone has filled the early 1900s weatherboard house with his signature ‘Jane Doe’ portraits. He also teamed up with interior stylist, Carly Spooner, to recreate the archetypal interiors, furthering the jarring mix of beauty and destruction particular to the experience of street art. As Rone explains:

“The concept of creating something beautiful within the context of decay and decline is central to the experience of any street artist. As is the idea that whatever you create might be gone the next day. For the artist, street art is all about embracing that transience and impermanence. And for the audience, it’s about seeing it (and taking photos of it) while you can”
