Sculptural animation by Takeshi Murata

Takeshi Murata’s latest sculptural animation, Melter 3-D, featured on Creator’s Project:

Melter 3-D is by definition a zoetrope, a device that produce the illusion of motion from a rapid succession of static pictures, but it’s tangible. In other words, the installation is a sculptural animation. The 3D-object itself spins, creating a kinetic effect (with the help of some strobe lights) that makes it look as if it’s melting into itself.
