Easter Eggs Are Design Canvases for These Zoetrope Animations

Easter Eggs Are Design Canvases for These Zoetrope Animations | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

All holidays are increasingly disappointing as you get older, but few have as precipitous a fall-off in excitement as Easter. It goes from a festive day of games, chocolates, and bunnies, to a holiday about the zombie-ish resurrection of a murder victim that’s on a goddamn Sunday so that you don’t even get an extra day off work. So if you need to inject a little joy into your Easter, check out the video below. Jiri Zemanek of Czech Technical University turned eggs into festive little zoetropes by inscribing them with patterns and rotating them, creating an animated effect.

Ian Hughes is a photographer whose first job on leaving art college in Merseyside in 1989 was as a photographer on American and Italian cruiseships – a funny and strange occupation which placed him front and centre on the summer holidays of thousands of unsuspecting, life-loving tourists. He shot every moment of their vacations, from their arrival onto the boat, ticket still in hand, to posing proudly on beaches or over tea and biscuits in the restaurant on-board, and unsurprisingly, his snapshots include some treasures that beat any staged family portrait. His collection is a glorious and unpredictable archive, and we cannot get enough of it. Especially that large man and his poor, poor camel.
