The Pixel/Stitch Analogy

steel zoetrope and knit animation
19″ diameter, 10″ tall

Zoetrope showing the motion of two hands knitting.  The inner strip of animated drawings is made of cloth constructed on a computerized knitting machine where each pixel becomes a stitch. When spun and viewed through the slits, viewers see the circular movement of hands looping knit stitches. Viewers encouraged to spin.
