Australian animator and digital artist, Elliot Schultz, embroidered discs with animated sequences that can be played on standard turntables. “Embroidered Zoetrope” was Schultz’s final art school project when he graduated from ANU School of Art back in 2013. His project encourages viewers to watch and engage with animation physically:

“Inspired by the work of Alexandre Alexeieff and Claire Parker, I aimed to guide my production process indirectly through the limitations afforded by alternative media. Their invention, the pin screen, was used as the sole medium in the production of six short films, and shaped the outcome of their work. In response, I have designed and embroidered animated sequences onto discs, similar to the Phenakistokope, Zoopraxiscope and Stamfer Disc layouts. This repurposing of media introduced strict parameters, namely spatial, tonal and temporal, and has greatly informed all stages of my process.” ~ Elliot Schultz
