What happens when you set a strobe to flash every time a sculpture rotates 137.5˚? John Edmark, art and design lecturer at Stanford University, US found out.
Take a look:
Edmark designed and 3D-printed these blooms to animate when rotated and hit with a perfectly timed strobe. He places the leaves 137.5˚ apart, the so-called golden angle. He then rotates the blooms at 550 rpm and videotapes them at 24 frames per second, so the camera captures one full turn per frame. (There’s a bit more to it, if you want to try it yourself.)
When not creating these transfixing sculptures, he’s designing smart objects for your kitchen.
