In these great pictures, London-based graphic designer Katy Beveridge creates animations by spinning paper cutouts fixed inside the wheels of a bicycle. By assembling paper cutouts into the wheels of bicycles, katy beveridge creates a zoetrope - the spinning devices that typically produce the illusion of a moving animation from a series of static pictures.
The cool thing is that this zoetrope effect can only be captured on film. At first glance, the movement of the wheels occurs too quickly and is perceived as a blur, but if you look at it frame by frame, beveridge's snowflake-like designs produce captivating animated visual effects which parallel all kinds of abstract forms and shapes.
