Here is an update to the Parsons Union Square kickstarter project.
The class has been preparing prototype linear zoetropes to be placed in the windows of Parsons’ building at 5th Avenue and 13th Street, facing the street.
We shouldn’t call them prototypes because they are full art pieces everyone in the class participated in creating, hosted by a great institution, on display for the public to see. But they are preparation for the Union Square display, which will be bigger and digital.
Below are some pictures of the students completing and installing these linear zoetropes. If you are near Manhattan, please come see them.
By this point, most of the difficult planning, construction, and assembly has been done. It’s just the final touches. There’s also lots of regular people walking around. If you’ve seen lenticular linear zoetropes before, you’ll recognize the images and lenses that go in front in a few of the pictures. They are hard to create and design well, but they’re looking good now.
We’ll get some pictures of these pieces and the public looking at them soon.
