In the center of the phenakistoscope there is a Yin Yang symbol that spins the entire project in to harmony. It is in the middle because it holds the power of the project. While going outward from the Yin Yang symbol my piece contains a series of manipulative hills, giving the project a psychedelic hypnotic feel. When spun at a high speed the black and white in the hills will blend, and it gives the piece a gray blur. Finally, at the outer rim displays a ball being shot up by a piston, this gives the project a perfect flow, and helps catch the eyes of most viewers because of its animation flow.
Making the phenakistoscope helped me learn a basic understanding of animation. It taught me how we must position the images. If the images are too far apart it would ruin the phenakistoscope, because the animation would be too fast and difficult to see
