Agamographs

Let’s make an agamograph! An agamograph is a series of images that change at different angles!

Agamographs can be made with any two images but sometimes it is fun to relate the two pictures. For example, you could use night and day, seedling & flower, spring and fall trees, etc.

Materials needed: 

  • 2 images from a magazine, coloring book, internet, or created by you with art supplies! These images don’t have to be exactly the same size but the same height makes arranging them more neat!
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Glue
  • 2 pieces of construction paper (size will depend on how big your images are)

We will start with these two images for our example project!

Directions

  1. With your ruler, measure one inch strips vertically (up and down) across each image.
  2. Cut each strip and make sure you keep them in order of how you will glue them. 
  3. On a construction paper or two, alternate gluing each strip (one from each image).
  4. Once both images are glued,  begin folding each strip into a fan. Now, check it out from each angle! Wa-la!
