Quinten Swagerman - Pristitrope, 2012

The pristitrope is a reinterpretation of the zoetrope, an early 19th century optical toy that shows short looped animations. The pristitrope modifies the zoetrope by replacing the static illustrations with small LCD screens, combining a digital way of showing images with an analogue way of showing their movement.


The pristitrope knows in which direction it is turning. Through this mechanism one can determine the direction of a fellow finding himself in a strange-loop journey. Looped environments circulate, clockwise as well as counterclockwise.
