The Cyclotrope

As a keen cyclist and general geek of experimenting with new methods to create mesmerising effects, I was particularly taken by Tim Wheatley‘s animation project, The Cyclotrope.

Drawing inspiration from original methods of displaying moving pictures, such as the Zoetrope,  Tim has created the aptly named animation as part of his digital animation degree, with eighteen subtly different images spun at just the right speed to create the illusion of animation.

The project has since gone on to feature in an advertising campaign against aids called ‘Move It‘.

Fantastic.
