Stop Motion: Experiments with Paper

We spent quite a bit of time ideating for this project. A point of inspiration was Sol Lewitt’s drawing instructions. We wanted to play with paper as our medium and use a variety of methods to transform it: cutting, tearing, taping, painting, etc.

We borrowed table lamps from other parts of the floor to setup our lighting for the piece. This was the hardest to keep stable as we began to transform the paper. In general, continuity was a challenge for this piece.

Our final experiment here:
