Pizza: Baked, flat, round bread, with tomato sauce, cheese, and various other toppings.

Zoetrope: A device that creates the illusion of motion from a rapid succession of static images.

Animated GIF: A digital image file popular on the world wide web for displaying short, repetitive animations.

“The Pizzoetrope” is a project that developed from my interest in the popularity of pizza on the internet and the way that popular culture is celebrated, especially on social networking sites like tumblr, by converting moving images into animated GIFs (including moving images of pizza; cowabunga!).

The Pizzoetrope presents the potential opportunity to experience your favorite GIF animations from the internets on a pizza in real life and in your stomach.
