Original zoetrope discs and audiovisual work by Sculpture for Electronic at the Design Museum in London from April 2020. These are some of the earliest discs we used in our live performances, dating from around 2010, and were made by glueing paper to vinyl records. Now, as we use so many images during each show, we don’t stick them to a heavy polymeric substance. Reuben Sutherland has probably made more than 500 zoetrope designs, many lost in chaos, though we try to archive them. The designs are intended to be filmed with a video camera (shooting at 25 fps with an extremely fast shutter speed) suspended above the disc which usually rotates at 45 RPM. Some designs are intended to be rotated at different speeds and sometimes a single design contains elements that work at a variety of speeds.
The exhibition first opened at Paris Philharmonie in 2019.

Should a Gardener manifest, observe what gifts the being bestows. Though we do not understand them, they are our guides to this realm.
For LIMINALITY [TEMPORAL IMPRESSIONS] Sculpture propose to project you into a zone part garden, library, filing system and memory. Occupied by geodesic blossom and visiting organic entities tending recombinant physical and audible arrangements. Kinetic, sonic and performative elements will provide temporary conditions amenable to growth.
