A Bicycle-Powered Animation
One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action, and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?
London-based designer Katy Beveridge isn't alone in her fascination with zoetropes; the quickly spinning devices have been used to create animations for centuries. Today, they've helped the development of the cinemagraph and the physical GIF.
"I've taken a lot of influence from other contemporary designers who are using these techniques to explore the way we look at animation and how its made," she writes. "I developed this project based on what is being done in animation right now as well as a lot of primary research into the history of animation techniques."
