by assembling paper cutouts into the wheels of bicycles, london-based graphic designer katy beveridge
creates a zoetrope– the spinning devices that typically produce the illusion of a moving animation from a series of static pictures.
interestingly, this zoetrope effect can only captured on film; to the naked eye, the movement of the wheels
occurs too quickly and is perceived as a blur. captured frame by frame, however, beveridge’s snowflake-like designs
produce captivating animated visual effects that mimic bobbling gears, growing plumes, and other abstract forms.
