Take Part in a Larger-than-Life Musical Experience During a Free, Interactive Exhibit
Loop is a larger-than-life cross between a music box, a zoetrope, and a railway handcar. The family-friendly, illuminated, interactive musical installation consists of 12 giant zoetropes – an optical toy invented in the 19th century that predates the animated film – that show images in rapid succession, creating the illusion of motion.
People sit inside the giant wheel and pump the lever together to activate the beautiful images inspired by 12 different childhood fairy tales. When the cylinder starts spinning, it lights up, making a series of still images appear to move through a flickering strobe effect that accompanies the black and white images. The animation is visible from both inside and outside the cylinder and can be viewed from up close or far away.
The interactive exhibit is free and is being brought to Burnett Park by Downtown Fort Worth, Inc. Free parking is available evenings and weekends from 6 p.m.-10 p.m. in the 9th/Cherry Street surface parking lot. We hope that you are in attendance for this fun and exciting event!
The Depot Apartments, an extraordinary blend of comfortable and convenient apartments in Fort Worth, Texas, would like to remind our friends and neighbors of this event!
