Fleeting Moments Phenakistoscope
A set of 16 phenakistoscope discs, each displaying an animated representation of one of life's fleeting moments.
 
Believed to be the first animation device, the phenakistoscope was invented in 1832.‭ Sequenced images circle a disc with corresponding slits‭. ‬The viewer peers through the slits whilst spinning the disc to see the animation reflected in a mirror‭. ‬The phenakistoscope is based on the phi phenomenon which refers to an optical illusion wherein the brain conjures a fluid animation between separate images in motion‭. ‬The slits prevent‭ ‬the images from blurring together and presents the illusion of a single moving picture‭.‬
