This winter, the Place des Festivals is shimmering with the mechanical poetry of Loop's 13 giant zoetropes. The interactive, participatory work is sure to warm visitors of all ages, who will be asked to activate the cylinders in order to make fairy tale-inspired images come to life. At the centre of each zoetrope is a music box to provide accompaniment for the giant animated drawings.
With the devices activated, the 13 rings of coloured light will each present a story lasting a few seconds: a toad becomes a prince, the wolf blows the three little pigs’s house, scary eyes appear in the dark. These illustrations, as well as the video projection, are by Ottoblix and will spark the imagination and memories of kids and adults alike.
