Artist spins screens back-to-back to create 3D illusions

Benjamin Muzzin's Full Turn uses the persistence of vision effect to build light sculptures.

A student at Swiss design school ECAL has created a machine that produces three-dimensional-looking kinectic light sculptures. Benjamin Muzzin's Full Turn has two LCD screens placed back-to-back, which are spun so quickly that the human eye can't distiguish between the frames.

Benjamin has used this to create elegant shapes and motions that appear to be floating in space. There are also a few homages to devices from the early days of motion pictures such as the zoetrope.

You can see Full Turn in action in the video above.
