Behold… the glory and wonder of our stop-motion group project! Click on the ‘vimeo’ symbol to watch it in HD – it’s better!
We’re rather proud of it.
The message we were trying to convey was one of science as a craft, in which people can interact with and learn from reality by physically manipulating it. To do that, we used the hands of an anonymous scientist, working at a generic bench with abstract objects to do stylised science.
The project was shot in, effectively, a single 10-hour take using a Canon 7D digital SLR. Morag, with a bit of help from Nils and I, hand-crafted the ‘data bit’ paper pieces, which turned out to be very good for representing abstract scientific concepts. It was a very collaborative effort, and despite a few technical glitches, it worked out how we planned.
Questions, comments and such about the meanings or technicalities are welcome! And share it if you like it!
