Experience Loop in the heart of Iowa City July 9th- August 10th

This illuminated musical installation, featuring a distinctive retro-futuristic look, uses cylinders and plays short flip book-style movies inspired by Quebec literature. The work is inspired by the zoetrope, an optical toy invented in the 19th century. Loop is a hybrid of the music box, zoetrope, and railway handcar.
