3D Zoetrope - Bead Spirals

Uploaded on Wednesday 12 March 2014


This is an experimental 3D zoetrope I made a few years ago now. The beads are hanging from a disc attached to a central pole. Each thread had to be placed pretty accurately and a blue and black bead attached to form the two spiral forms. I had to play about a bit with the positioning, as the centrifugal force means the beads swing outwards as they spin, affecting the accuracy of the animation. It took a long time.
