The Cyclotrope Circus

Jacquelyn Hébert, Megan Turnbull and Nathalie Coulson
La Nuit Blanche, Saturday, September 28, 7-9 pm at MAWA
The Cyclotrope Circus is a kinetic sculpture based on the idea of a zoetrope, an old cinematic apparatus that creates the illusion of motion from a sequence of static images. Inspired by Eadweard Muybridge’s photographic experiments of the 19th century, The Cyclotrope examines everyday gestures and movements.
The Cyclotrope Circus was created by Montreal-based artistic collaborators Jacquelyn Hébert and Megan Turnbull and Winnipegger Nathalie Coulson, who used their combined experiences in environmental design, sculpture, bicycle mechanics, photography and motion pictures to create the work. Their goal is to promote an engagement with bicycle culture, play, drawing, photography and cinema history.
