Spinning Daggers, A Beautiful Series of Spinning Wooden Zoetrope Sculptures Among Trees in Autumn

“Spinning Daggers” by Benjamin Ducroz is a short film featuring spinning wooden zoetrope sculptures against trees in autumn. The form of each oscillating sculpture is in sine and triangle waves modulating over 18 frames.

A short featurette shows his studio and some sculptures that didn’t make it into the final version of “Spinning Daggers.”
