Thanks to the inertness and imperfection of the human eye, we enjoy the illusion of motion. Eye inertia is the eye’s inability to perceive all the individual stages of movement due to its great speed. It is measurable and on average amounts to 16Hz, which means we can see 16 frames per second. We can imagine our eye to be like a camera that captures 16 frames in one second, which are then spun by our brain at the same speed and that is how we see and perceive movement, but also the world surrounding us. Aside from seeing and perceiving the surroundings, we can also enjoy watching films, television, animation, internet, video games. In the 19th century a real explosion of innovations and inventions in the field of optics, photography and animation occurred, making this truly a golden age of optical devices, whose improvement affected the development of film and animation. Zoetrope, thaumatrope and flip book are some of the devices the workshop facilitator Snježana Gabelić from Sedmi kontinent will help the participants make.

The workshop is intended for children aged 6-9, and you can register via e-mail: djeca@animafest.hr, or by phone: 091/3063 055
