Robotic Flip Books
by David Behringer of the Two Percent
Juan Fontanive "Films Without Light" @ Danese Corey Gallery, 511 West 22nd St., ends 6 Feb. Exhibition Website
Artist Juan Fontanive creates self-flipping flip books of butterflies (and hummingbirds) that flip at the speed of BUTTERFLY WINGS!!! WHAT?!! Every image is drawn by him, then re-printed in the books in a robotic flipping mechanism that he also built/designed. Check out a video of one here and run to the gallery to see many more! I dare you not to smile.
