Life on Earth is beautiful and diverse, motion is its fundamental feauture. everything moves, flows, grows, breaths, reproduces…
The “Beauty of Life” object works on the zoeotrope principle – a simple device which renders pictures, mimicking movement. The word zoeotrope originates in Greek, zoe, which means “life” and tropos, which stands for “turning”. Zoeotrope devices were popular in the 19th century, but eralier versions can be traced back to 5000 years ago. Our zoeotrope is a modern spatial version with rotating object, illuminated with a strobe light at rapid intervals. The stroboscopic effect makes each object come to life.
Zoetrope made with more than 340 paper models all handmade.
