Jim Le Fevre, was commissioned by producer/multi-instrumentalist SBTRKT and record label Young Turks, in collaboration with Red Bull, to create a giant 3-D stroboscope. The SBTRKT-O-SCOPE was unveiled and showcased at Inner-City Arts’ event Summer on Seventh in Los Angeles and has gone on to tour with the band. The character is taken from SBTRKT’s album campaign.
The 8ft tall and 6ft wide, stroboscope spins at 33.3rpm and is illuminated by a strobe-rig to create the optical illusion of animation. The architecture and tiers were laser-cut to specific dimensions, and the character – taken from SBTRKT’s album campaign – animated at Nexus’ London studio then 3-D printed frame by frame into physical models.
The SBTRKT-O-SCOPE is one of the largest 3-Dimensional stroboscopes in existence.
