Praxinoscope

Back in time, when cinema couldn’t even be imagined, people were eager to capture movement and they invent different artefacts to do so.

One of them, was the Praxinoscope. A circular spinnable  set with mirrors at the centre and a place to put a sequence of drawings at the exterior, that would be reflected by the mirrors.

When you span the engine and looked at the mirrors a new vivid looped image was created.
