Union Square in Motion

Union Square in Motion A continuation of a spring collaboration studio, 3 Parsons’ students, 3 Parsons' Alumni, and New York City’s Submedia LLC Advertising have created an interactive installation in Union Square, NYC.

“Union Square in Motion” is a public intervention consisting of two digital linear lenticular zoetropes that uses a person's own motion to make still images appear animated. It is comprised of 31 animations, 9 monitors, 9 custom-cut lenses, 9 modems, 1 router, and a laptop running custom code to loop the animations. They are a momentary distraction from the hustle and bustle of one the busiest commuter locations in New York City. 34,730,692 people rode through the station last year. The goal of this installation is to give these riders a break, making the experience a little more interesting and enjoyable.

I wonder how many transit systems can say they are home to two life-sized zoetropes. While Manhattan-bound riders on the B and Q have long spied the Masstransiscope just east of the Manhattan Bridge, straphangers passing through Union Square can now marvel at the world’s largest digital linear zoetr...

Zoetrope - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

What is a zoetrope?

A zoetrope is a device that produces an illusion of action from a rapid succession of static pictures. The term zoetrope is from the Greek words "zoe", "life" and τρόπος - tropos, "turn". It may be taken to mean "wheel of life".
