The Kid Should See This

Freequences, a ‘caketrope’ animation by Alexandre Dubosc

French animator Alexandre Dubosc specializes in ‘caketropes’ or 3D zoetropes, spinning animation machines, that look like chocolate cakes. Freequences, his July 2019 creation, explores the repetition of sound waves, vibrations, patterns, and musical instruments. See how he made it over the course of three months in these behind-the-scenes photos.
