Thaumatrope Thaumatrope Thaumatrope

title: Thaumatrope

materials: paper and string

size: 5" diameter

medium: intaglio print

notes: When the strings of a thaumatrope are twirled between the fingers the two pictures on either side of the disk appear to combine into a single image. In this case the bird's lifeless body radiates in an aura of light and song. A video of this thoumatrope can be seen here
