Crazy Zoetrope like Creations

These three creations are not exactly Zoetrope creations. But they take the idea to the next level. The first example uses a record player to turn the work at a known rate, then by viewing the piece at a particular frame rate the background of the image appears to be static and the objects seem to interact! The videos below are Burning Man creations by Peter Hudson that use a strobe effect to freeze the image at the correct time. Using this effect there is no need for precise speed but the timing of the strobes must be exact.
