Zoetropes unexpectedly combine embroidery and animation

Art and video go so well together but very rarely do we find something that makes the most of both media. Zoetropes is the perfect combination of the two. It’s a video of ever-rotating discs with embroidered images and objects that come alive in motion.

As the discs rotate, digital artist Elliot Schultz takes multiple photographs that, when put together in sequence, give a subtle stop-motion effect. Citing the inspiration behind Zoetrope, he says, “Inspired by the work of Alexandre Alexeieff and Claire Parker, I aimed to guide my production process indirectly through the limitations afforded by alternative media.” Check out the complete animation below and some GIFs of the best moments!
