Awesome Bicycle Animation

Katy Beveridge created an amazing animation using her bicycle and some carefully planned cutouts. She has essentially turned her bicycle into a zoetrope. As the wheel spins at a high rate of speed, the minor changes in the repeated patterns appear to animate right before our eyes.

This is a piece created to question whether it was possible to film animation in realtime. Part of my CSM 3rd year disseration project I was looking at proto animation (really early basic animation) in contemporary design. I’ve taken a lot of influence from other contemporary designers who are using these techniques to explore the way we look at animation and how its made. As stated on my channel I have interviewed animators such as Jim le Fevre and in my research referenced other people using this technique such as David Wilson and Tim Wheatley who did this before me. I developed based on what is being done in animation right now as well as a lot of primary research into the history of animation techniques. – Katy Beveridge
