In 2010, Artists Wendy Marvel and Mark Rosen decided to combine their creativity and collaborate with "LED-less tech art."
After working together on a few group projects and gallery shows, they decided to build a split-flap art peice that based on an old fashioned train station arrival/departure sign mechanism. The only vintage split-flap display that they could find was costly and far away - so Mark just built his own mechanism using old ink-jet printer parts.
The first flip book sold quickly at a charity show/auction and after Wendy and Mark saw people's reaction to the piece, they knew they had to dive deep into the medium.
