GIANT FLIPBOOKS IN DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN
Beam Center brings mechanical urban storytelling to DUMBO, Brooklyn
FlipNYC: Two of the world’s largest mechanical, solar-powered Flipbooks, built by youth in collaboration with architect Chee-Kit Lai, artist Ebony Bolt, and hundreds of community illustrators. Interactive public art installation, June 2019
FLIPBOOKS are kinetic sculptures that tell animated stories through 100s of individual images that are rotated mechanically. Like the classic children’s toy, drawings are sequenced and create simple animations when activated.
