Quoting from their website
"The Diasynchronoscope project is a joint artistic adventure in a new medium of choreographed time. The name Diasynchronoscope comes from combining diachronic‚ (the study of a phenomenon as it changes through time) with synchronous and scope (view). In being so named‚ it evokes the early animation simulators such as the phenakistoscope and the zoetrope which we regard as direct ancestors of the project acting both as art objects and experimental media.
The Diasynchronoscope is a prototypical‚ experimental medium that draws on tropes from animation‚ film and Gestalt grouping principles‚ but it also possesses its own syntax and grammar: Each developing artwork reveals more formalisms and boundaries inherent to the medium."
