The Phonographantasmascope

The very earliest forms of animation evolved in China around 180 AD when an inventor called Ting Huan created a zoetrope that hung over a lamp and was driven by convection. Pictures painted on paper panels inside appeared to move when the device spun at the right speed. Fast forward to 2010, and British artist Jim Le Fevre is trying the same trick using a more modern invention…the turntable. The combination of a zoetrope and phonograph was once called the Phonographantasmascope, but thankfully he's cut that down to the more pronounceable Phono-trope…and here it is. Music by Elliot Smith, "In the Lost and Found". If this is a repost, my bad.
