flipbook cinema

I've always had a fascination with flip books, I collect them, I've created them. But that wasn't enough, I always wanted them to be more, to be of a presence, to be art, to be interactive sculpture. I had created my mutoscopes, more of a circular flipbook sculpture, but I also wanted a way to tell a longer story, one that didn't have to end where it began. As an analog version of youtube, you even can control the speed and the direction of playback.


Immortalize a wedding dance, a babies first steps, a blown kiss, the winning shot, an amazing swing, a kick, a dive, a punch, a score, a goooaaaaaalllllll.


Here's Sadie Saidel starring in the first flip book I ever made. That's my Nana going from 20 - 90 in 50 pages. It was the invitation to her 90th birthday party.

Flipbooks as      Sculpture

Throughout his life,  John was very active and well photographed. His wonderful wife, Hildegard,
sent me hundreds of those images for me to work with. Of those, I weaved about 40 of his photos together with transitions to bring John from a little kid to an older kid
