Jim Le Fevre makes 12 foot Sculptural Zoetrope for SBTRKT

The common mistake with attempting a zoetrope is to expect it to do too much. It’s unlike a film which has at its disposal time to start and stop actions. It’s at its best when it is exploring a simple loop or phrase of movement, and a lot can be done by skillfully crafting that within a context. This is part of the restrictions of limited time and space for the loops. All loops exist in parallel, meaning movements need to be clear of each other by the time the next loop is in play. Equally, baring in mind the repetitive nature of loops, some movements may read differently than intended. – (what are you waiting for go see it now).
