Alimation - Photo du film 20

Alexandre Dubosc's Amazing Zoetrope Cakes!

A zoetrope is a device that produces an illusion of action from a rapid succession of static pictures. The term zoetrope is from the Greek words "zoe", "life" and τρόπος - tropos, "turn". It may be taken to mean "wheel of life". (Wikipedia)

 A visit this weekend with my good friend and photographer Rick Allred got me all jazzed about his work with time lapse photography and just how amazing stop-action photography is as a creative tool.
My first introduction to zoetropes came from the art of Peter Hudson and his amazing zoetrope installations at Burning Man. See another example here. My brother Scott, who was witness to all this merriment, directed me to Peter's work.
Imagine my delight when I recently came across these amazing animated cake zoetropes by Alexandre Dubosc (VIDEO) View Alimation
Don't you just love innovation and the human capacity for boundless creative spirit! Delicious AND Entertaining!!
