MUTOSCOPE

(think circular flipbook)

a reimagining of the mutoscope

 

I've always loved the look of the classic mutoscope. the cast iron clamshell design

 

when i first saw the inside i thought thats really what they are about.

 

so i set out to take the insdie the "wheel" of images and make a mutoscope that was beautiful to look at as a sculpture

 

and then you can interact with it

 

 

 

Persistence of vision is not just a toy

 

Persistence of vision refers to the optical illusion that occurs when visual perception of an object does not cease for some time after the rays of light proceeding from it have ceased to enter the eye.[2] The illusion has also been described as "retinal persistence",[3] "persistence of impressions" or simply "persistence" and other variations.

 

This has been believed to be the explanation for motion perception in cinema and animated films, but this theory has long been discarded by scientists.
