Zoetrope Junior

Zoetrope JuniorA portable tabletop version of our Aether Zoetrope exhibit. As the cylinder rotates, you see a fragment of the picture on the far side of the cylinder. When the next slit passes your eye it reveals a slightly different part of the picture. Each image lingers in your eye and brain long enough to merge with the next image. This phenomenon, called persistence of vision, creates the illusion of a continuously moving picture.
