These are amazingly well done, original in the circular format and yes, wonderfully mesmerizing. Love the rain one.

As a fan of embroidery and animation, this was a delight.

I was wondering how that worked and then I RTFA: aha, strobe lights. Lovely.

That is so, so sweet. He should re-do the zoetrope on the N/Q line between Atlantic and Canal St.

Studio Ghibli made a 3D Zoetrope, which inspired Pixar to make one.

The worm one kinda creeped me out.

Great art project: giant living zoetrope from an old carousel using live models.

Wow, these are really beautiful.

Regarding the worm one, if you ran the turntable backwards would they be swimming away from the center?

I think the one after the worm one is the worm one again, upside-down, and they are.

Those are much more interesting than I expected them to be. There is something hypnotic about them. The links on the bottom of the artist's page might keep me busy for a while.

Beautiful. Something related: Animator Nina Paley (of This Land is Mine, copyright law, and Sita Sings the Blues fame) released some wonderful embroidered animation a week ago, illustrating the fun traditional Passover song Chad Gadya. Includes spinning matzoh cover zoetropes/phenakistoscopes! She collaborated with programmer/science author Theodore Gray, who describes the custom stitchcoding algorithms which give orientation-consistent thread texture to each component of the animation; one result is lovely moving animal legs, each part of which stands out from the body and other leg parts of the the exact same color.

I'm reminded of Eric Dyer's amazing turntable installations. And Katy Beveridge's bicycle tire spoke animation!
