The World of the Senses Exhibition has opened in March 2018 featuring the Silhouette Zoetrope as part of the Deutsches-Hygiene Museum Dresden: Children's Museum permanent Collection
The Silhouette Zoetrope is now part of the permanent collection of the Lingelbach Barn, also know as the Lingelbachs Scheune, a private museum of optical Illusions created by Prof. Dr. Bernd Lingelbach.
Since my first visit to the Technorama in February 2018, I went back during the Summer to develop, in collaboration with their team, two brand new prototypes of the Silhouette Zoetrope. It was an honor to work with their team and I'm looking forward seeing the final pieces in their collection.
The Silhouette Zoetrope will be featured as part of the Kopfwelten / Mindscapes Exhibition at the Swiss Science Center Technorama, Winterthur, Switzerland.
Stay tuned for more updates!

Acqua Lumen (2015) is a Visual Music piece that explores patterns and motifs created by the light reflections in water. These close-ups of water are an attempt to catch interesting visual abstractions hidden in it and try to find correspondences between these graphic forms and Philip Glass’ music Mad Rush, performed by Aleck Karis.
Transformation of the Acqua Lumen Visual Music piece into a flipbook (2015) to investigate the possibilities and limitations of different mediums.
How did the timing of the piece change? How to add sound to the flipbook format? These questions led to the creation of the Flipbook Sound Project.
