“Create” Stop Motion

Stop motion animations allow for a unique mode of communication using materials, movement, and sound to tell a story. The goal of this project was to experiment with the advantages of stop motion animation while projecting a message about my perspective of design: Everyone is capable of using the materials around them to create something for beauty and purpose.



“Anyone can create” is a stop motion animation that tells a story about materials, transformation, and collaboration. It utilizes the illusions made possible by stop motion to bring the materials to life, and projects the positive message that anyone can create from what they have–even trash–to make something better.



With the idea of using found materials in mind, I collected items from around my apartment and studio and arranged them in continuously shifting compositions.
