Saturday Afternoon Zoetropes

We created some 12 frame hand drawn loops on strips of paper and used the Zoetrope to make the animation come to life!

Then we moved on to circular 10 frame loops and used the Praxinoscope to view them. The praxinoscope uses a slanted 10 sided mirror attached to a rotating disc to create the effect we need to trick our eye into seeing the movement.
