Stroboscope Animation Project
The SMFA Animation Integration class has been working on doing animation STROBOSCOPES. This is a collection of replacement animation sculptures/images that are mounted onto a fast, rotating turntable and flashed by a high-powered strobe light. This combination creates what appears to be animating sculpture.
The class worked on a small preparatory exercise, and then a larger group project. We held a mini-exhibition of the group stroboscope and our motorized thaumatropes. We had visitors, and they were excited and said that it all was very super cool and amazing.
You can check out our pictures online, and we'll be digitizing and posting some video of the animation soon (we hope!)
