This low-resolution video documents the making of the kinetic sculpture "cenotaph". A compilation of atomic test footage and live-action choreography was used to create a series of approximately 900 printed flipcards. These cards were bound together as a book and wrapped around a hub to form a moving-picture reel. A motor cranks the reel, flipping through the cards to animate the 60-second live action sequence. The sculpture is weather-proof and largely indestructable -- constructed from poured concrete, a thick glass prism, and handmade mechanics contained within. The cenotaph is solar powered, with solar cells in a bay at the rear of the concrete housing, embedded in clear rubber resin. No doubt, "cenotaph" will be around for quite some time. Comments welcome!
