The one hundred year zoetrope
from Easter Rising to "Yes, Equality"
You are facing a small structure . The handle says turn me. Inside the cabinet is a disc covered in multiple images. The disc starts to rotate. The images blur. The light goes out and suddenly the images come to life and form into smooth real time animations as the strobe light kicks in. Looking down or to the sides within the cabinet you see infinite reflections.
So an old technology is used to create psychedelic, mesmerizing effects when viewed with a strobe light.
This is an interactive , performative installation, where the animation is narrated from the centre out, so guiding the eye through 100 years of Irish history in 1 minute.
