The blocks used to create the stop motion portion of this installment in the Smart Meter collection still sit on the shelves in our office. Hand carved and painted in bright colors, these blocks continue to remind us of the importance of having a physical connection to the design of a piece. A time-consuming, labor of love, stop motion animation is worth every tedious second, every tiny movement, adjustment, rotation, and it’s a great way to stay in touch. Literally.
