Public Art Installation: Loop

Arts and Culture, Hobbies and Interests, Recreation
Date: Daily
Time: 7 a.m. - 10 p.m.

Take a step back in time on Titletown’s Plaza and engage with Loop, an interactive art exhibit inspired by the zoetrope – an optical toy invented in the 19th century. Comprised of six giant cylinders measuring more than six feet in diameter, Loop is a combination of an animated music box and a railway handcar.

Visitors are invited to work the hand lever inside the retro-futuristic machine to create an animated fairytale. The speed at which the images fly by, the frequency at which the light flickers and the rhythm of the audio composition are all directly related to the pace set by the participants.

Experience Loop at Titletown for a limited time - the exhibit is onsite through Sunday, October 6.
