Zoetropes and Whoopee Cushions
Riverside First Sunday
April 01, First Sunday Workshop, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
On this April Fools’ Day make some magic, and some fun, with a workshop all about zoetropes, a spinning drum device that animates a strip of images, and whoopee cushions, an astonishing bio-mimicking acoustic device with which to make fun of your friends.
What do these two phenomena have to do with each other, you ask? Nothing! Participants of this workshop will have the opportunity to draw simple animations for a hand-made zoetrope and learn how they can make their own at home. Or, they can make a whoopee cushion! It’s a gas!
After making your own animation, or whoopee cushion, you can explore RENDER: NEW CONSTRUCTION IN VIDEO ART, an exhibition at the California Museum of Photography that explores the experience of pixels and particle units with the moving image in contemporary art.
ZOETROPES AND WHOOPEE CUSHIONS Workshop is lead by Sarah Bay Williams, Maxwell H. Gluck Fellow and graduate candidate in Art History at UC Riverside.
ZOETROPES AND WHOOPEE CUSHIONS is an ARTSblock First Sunday event and is supported by the Gluck Fellows Program of the Arts at UC Riverside. The Gluck Fellows Program is made possible by the generosity of the Maxwell H. Gluck Foundation.
