imageAnimator Tim Wheatley just made this DIY zoetrope with bike parts, cardboard cut outs, Kawaii blob doodles and spindly jutting wire. Like the vandalizing Robo-Rainbow, it’s a nifty little wheel reinvention. But what’s… the ultimate?

Here’s Mat Collishaw’s epic Throbbing Gristle. It’s the ideal of all sculptural zoetrope. Now, Cyclotrope is a whole different kind of animal, of course, a cuddlier one that doesn’t involve wolfmen rape and boozing babies. Both have their own merits. Now get your broken bike out and make it useful.
