Pristitrope in exhibition 'Digital Revolution'

Making the Pristitrope

The Pristitrope is a modification of the zoetrope, a pre-cinematic optical toy that shows short, looped animations.

The Pristitrope replaces the zoetropes static illustrations with 16 LCD screens, merging a digital way of showing images with an analogue way of showing their movement. The machine knows in which direction it is turning. Therefore, basic interactivity is possible.
