Proposal: Team Linear Zoetrope is looking for a team of 3 artists, to work together to create digital artwork for a linear zoetrope that emphasizes the vulnerability of our underground transportation systems. And how climate change will dramatically impact the lives of the people that use them.

Logistics of Linear Zoetrope: The Underground platform where our team will be installing the zoetrope is roughly 300 feet long. This means that we require 225 frames of artwork moving at 15 fps, totaling out as a 15-second animation. Each artist will work on 75 frames, translating to 5 seconds of animation time per artist.

  • Must be 18 years old or older

  • Must be a resident of Cambridge or Boston, Massachusetts

  • Media: Digital

How To Apply:

We kindly ask each artist to include a portfolio of their previous works upon applying. As well as a sketch/outline of ideas that they plan to illustrate if they were to contribute to the linear zoetrope. These can be sent to the email 

Apply by:
October 10, 2019
Each artist will receive a stipend of $1,000 dollars and will begin working with our team to create the digital artwork required for the zoetrope.
About this Organization:
Glocal is a program offered to CRLS high school students who are looking to solve problems facing the Cambridge community. This year’s prompt was “communicating climate change.” Team Zoetrope’s had the idea of installing a linear zoetrope in the subway. In order to display the long-lasting effects of climate change on the Cambridge/Boston subway systems.
