Carnaval des Moutons
Carnaval des Moutons is an ode to the zoetrope, a pre-film animation device that produces the illusion of motion by displaying a sequence of drawings, invented in 1834 by the British mathematician William George Horner.
The installation consists of a merry-go-round filled with sheep. Participants are invited to take a seat and don an AR-headset. By setting the carousel in motion and looking as the carousel moves, an augmented reality will take shape showing images of the zoetrope history from almost a century old. As a result, one of the oldest methods of moving images is combined with one of the newest – merging both analog and virtual layers and creating a mixed reality artwork.
For this installation, original zoetrope drawing cards owned by the Amsterdam Filmmuseum EYE have been scanned in a high resolution. These have then been artistically framed in a three dimensional perspective using AR, which gives the visitor a unique experience inspired by cultural heritage.
