For my Foundations class, out teacher asked us to create a phenakistoscope. Some facts, phenakistoscope can also be spelled phenakistiscope or phenakitiscope, all three ways are correct. The phenakistoscope is an early animation device that is made on a circular disk. The idea behind this was to animate on the disk and then spin it, and through persistence in vision, the animation was created. Without persistence of vision, the image would just look like a big blur, and with it the illusion of motion can be created.

For mine, I wanted to use actual pictures to create something unique. This was because there are literally no phenakistoscopes made using photography. I got my inspiration from a phenakistoscope I found while on a google search (the image will be below). I wanted to take a picture from 2 years ago and morph it into a picture of me know. I believe that I was pretty successful. However, if I were to redo it, I would not have the fade from black at the beginning.





Also, here is a Still of mine.
