Little Bear Zoetrope, Emily Jan & Chris Flower (Montreal, QC). 
April 2017. Watercolor and graphite on paper, ceiling fan motor.

In searching for parts to run the Barley Twist Column, Flower and Jan found a broken ceiling fan. They re-configured the fan mount, motor and an old table-top into a zoetrope, an animation device that produces the illusion of motion. Inspired by a beat-up collection stuffed animal, beloved by the April 2017 artists in residence, Jan created a sequence of images showing it in progressive phases of movement. The kinetic sculpture and animation give life to this otherwise lifeless stiff bear from the collection.
