For those that received a 12” zoetropic turntable slipmat with their purchase of Animal Collective’s Painting With, here are instructions to activate the animation: 

1. Download the free Painting With iOS app from the iTunes App Store.
2. Open the app and select the rotating slipmat icon in the top right of the app’s home screen to enable the strobe light feature.
3. With the slipmat on the turntable’s platter, set the turntable speed to spin at either 33 1/3 or 45 rpm and select the corresponding speed on the app screen before turning on both the turntable and strobe light feature. 

Please note:

The strobe light feature of the Painting With iOS app may trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy.
A darker lit room allows for the animation to be seen more clearly.
Due to the variety in hardware specifications of Android devices currently available on the market, there isn’t a strobe light application that allows for the precise control of the device's flashlight needed to activate the animation. We're looking for solutions for Android users and will update this page when one has been found.
