Rotations: Edible Animations

Alimation from Alexandre DUBOSC on Vimeo.

This remarkable video demonstrates the Zoetrope Effect. Zoetropes are devices that simulate animation through the use of quickly rotating a series of different images. In this case, the images are colored into the icing of cakes.

Suppose you wanted to make one of these, (perhaps not a cake, but something that you could rotate to simulate animation), what are the variables? What would we have to consider if we wanted to create something like this in class? What questions would we have to answer before we decided to start? What questions would we have to answer later – before we could finish and present the final product?
