Mechanical Frames

Mechanical Frames is a device made up of mechanical flip books and a generative graphic program. Each time a folio change (flip) is captured, a new frame of the program is projected.

In Mechanical Frames, the narrative unfolds at the same speed as the rotating flip book, becoming infinite and variable.
