Highlights from my first three months making analog animations on my lasercutter.
Phenakistoscopes were one of the first forms of animation, using the persistence of vision effect to blur multiple images into one moving picture. Early forms relied on slits & mirrors to trick the eye, modern versions often use a strobe or a camera’s shutter speed to trigger the animation. These lasercut discs spring to life when placed on a record player & viewed through a camera.
