The great hopeful someday

The great hopeful someday is a stop-motion animation made with plastice, drawing and found objects. The work explores transformation between animal-people and creature worlds. Materials and landscapes transform, and text expresses ideas of hope and trust as characters encounter and retreat from each other.
