Full Turn by Benjamin Muzzin Produces 3D Imagery Unlike Anything You’ve Seen

Studying to receive his Bachelor Degree in Media & Interaction Design, Benjamin Muzzin of the University of Art and Design in Lausanne (ECAL) has developed an ingenious machine that produces 3D images similar to holographic displays.

Benjamin writes about the art installation:

With this project I wanted to explore the notion of the third dimension, with the desire to try to get out of the usual frame of a flat screen. For this, my work mainly consisted in exploring and experimenting a different device for displaying images, trying to give animations volume in space.

Benjamin Muzzin's "Full Turn" uses Revolving Screens to Create Holograms

The complex display might remind one of a mutoscope and harkens to the days of penny arcades. However, unlike antique movie viewers, this machine is meant to be enjoyed by a crowd standing not too close as the contraption spins images to life.

The resulting machine works with the rotation of two screens placed back to back, creating a three-dimensional animated sequence that can be seen at 360 degrees. Due to the persistence of vision, the shapes that appear on the screen turn into kinetic light sculptures.
