Nervous System, “Growing Objects” Zoetropes (2014)



These gorgeous zoetropes were made by Nervous System for a 2014 exhibit called “Growing Objects” at the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics in Stonybrook, NY.

The show considers four natural growth patterns/ processes, and Nervous System made these zoetropes to represent (though not simulate) these patterns in action. A much more comprehensive description/explanation can be found here. These really are stunning. The references to patterns that recur in nature remind me of John Edmark’s pieces that made the rounds earlier this year.
