A garden of 3D zoetropes grows in the autumnal scenescape of artist Benjamin Ducroz's latest video, Spinning Daggers. The film highlights three of his most recent kinetic wooden sculptures, roiling like ferrofluids amidst crunchy orange leaves and craggy woodlands: "The sculptures consist of 18 instances—their form is in the shape of different sine and triangle waves modulating over 18 frames," Ducroz explains in the video description. While far simpler than Mat Collishaw's Rubens-inspired 3D zoetrope,Takeshi Murata's Melter 3-D, and most of his own more colorful artworks, the simple woodcut waves would blow William George Horner away.
