Infinity Zoetrope

Grad school project
TouchDesigner, Fabrication

The infinity zoetrope is a performance that combines real life and the imagination by turning an analog form into something limitless. It was shown at the Museum of the Moving Image for a class taught by Shantell Martin. By using digital technology to capture a rotating disk at the right speed, the infinity zoetrope creates an infinite loop that appears to extend into another dimension through the use of color and transformation.

This performance was done in collaboration with Hadar ben Tzur, to a poem by "Proof for the Existence of God" by Jorge Luis Borges.

Illustrations and readings were by Hadar. Both generating the zoetrope discs, and playing them back was done in TouchDesigner by me.
