ETERNAL ILLUSION
DANIEL GOMEZ SANCHO
Series: STUDENT SHORT, AGES 12 - 18
Description - Eternal Illusion is a 3D zoetrope that displays an experience lived in first person by its author, after the death of a loved one. It emphasizes the emotion of fear, which is one of the phases experienced during the mourning process, according to psychological literature. This artwork was developed based on this personal event to create a piece that seeks a middle ground between animation and sculpture. The innovation lies in combining the ancient technique of the zoetrope with 3D printing and the illusion generated by the looping movement as a representation of the cycle of grief, as well as the use of a central animated character that connects with fear through body movement. All this is surrounded by natural elements that represent the inherent dynamics of life and death. The project represents this emotion on a material plane through the development of a monochromatic 3D zoetrope, which offers an approach to the subject from an individual and collective perspective.
