Picture disks are cool. I have a few of them. The one pictured above is my favorite. That’s the LP of Rob Zombie’s Hellbilly Deluxe. What could possibly be better? How about animated picture disks? The video below shows a zoetrope disc, Plastic Infinite, from the audio-visual group Sculpture. If you were to just play it normally, the images are just a spinning blur. But if you add a strobe light, or film it at 25fps… that’s where the magic happens. The first edition is sold out, but if you would like to be notified when the second edition becomes available, you can sign up at the website.
