Zoetropes were the first animations done before cartoons. They were first made in 1834 by William George Horner. They looked like a drum that you spin, and look through the side of the drum to reveal a looping animation. Elliot Schultz applied the same concept with embroidery. Elliot says this about his work:
"Early pioneers of the art form experimented with the combination of hand drawn animation and live action performances, demonstrating the natural inclusiveness of animation which invites a wide variety of media to be used in the creation process."
Zoetropes are making a comeback in art with different medium. Maybe you could make a paper Zoetrope, or draw your own!
