Embroidered Zoetrope

A project by Elliot Schultz that creates physical animations using embroided textiles and a turntable

Embroided Zoetrope is a playful project by Elliot Schultz where he's created a set of physical animations using embroided textiles and a turntable. His aim is to "encourage viewers to watch and engage with animation physically" and we really like how the final animation looks on film.


"Discs were created with animated sequences embroidered onto their surface. They have been designed to be played on standard turntables and their shape and size is inherited from 10" vinyl records. The animation is activated when a strobe light illuminates the discs in sync with the embroidered frames of animation.

This work was completed for my degree project at the ANU School of Art in 2013.
