DESCRIPTION

Heather Circled is a spinning persistence of vision (PoV) display, made for Heather Knight in 2oo2. By spinning a disk at roughly 20Hz, and blinking a very specific sequence of lights at the right time, the eye cannot tell that a discrete set of signals are being transmitted - instead, it blends the entire sequence into one static image - in this case, heather's name twice around the circumference.
