A multimedia installation by

Sofia Aronov and Stefan Iyapah

Zoetropia is an animated 3D installation created for Sky Arts Stings Competition 2014.

The competition instructed to create a 20 seconds Ident to celebrate the themes that Sky Arts channel offers, such as fine art, dance, cinema, theatre, performance, music and more.

Our piece was inspired by zoetropes, pre-film devices which combine frame sequences with circular motion to create the illusion of animation. 

Our goal was to show the bridge between the origins of moving image and contemporary animation. We designed a zoetrope whose animation could be detected and reproduced with the use of a video camera.
