ILSSA Zoetropes and Zine

personal projects

These zoetropes were created as part of a workshop during the 3rd Annual ILSSA Group Residency at North Mountain in Hedgesville, West Virginia.  Collaborators each spent the day learning about the animation process and building their own zoetropes, and I then filmed the resulting devices and set it to a song sung by fellow residents Stina Soderling and Tristan Gordon.

The resulting film premiered during a North Mountain Retrospective gallery exhibit at Phaze II Gallery at Shepherd University in September of 2018. Along with the zoetropes was exhibited a zine I created based on a stanza from the Tom Wayman poem “Did I Miss Anything?” and our residency group sonic meditation led by Tristan and Stina.
