'SKEE TV' Exclusive: Take a Step Inside the Strobe-y SBTRKTOSCOPE

English EDM star SBTRKT's Wonder Where We Land album featured an interesting little creature on the cover, one wearing the same mask the dude dons while performing. And in a new installation, the character comes to life.

At Inner-City Arts' Summer on 7th event in late July, a 3D zoetrope experience called The SBTRKTOSCOPE premiered. SKEE TV was there to get the scoop on the piece, inspired by the stunning video for SBTRKT's collaboration with Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig, "NEW DORP. NEW YORK."

The SBTRKTOSCOPE works with rotation and strobe lights to put the creatures—yeah, there's more than one—into "motion." But it's actually a trick the piece plays on your brain. Check it out above.

SKEE TV season 2 premieres Friday, Oct. 2 at 10/9c. Find Fuse in your area, and learn more about SKEE TV here.
