Because it’s Friday: “WoodSwimmer” by Brett Foxwell

Stop motion appears quite often on a Friday, that’s partly because I like it, but also because I’m fascinated by the amount of time people will spend creating a piece.

Today’s stop motion must have taken an extraordinary amount of effort and patience with each frame being built by shaving off another layer of wood.

Brett Foxwell who created it describes it like this:

It was a challenging technique to perfect, but once I did, I was able to shoot short sequences that move the camera through samples of hardwood, burls and branches. The result is beautiful imagery both abstract and very real. In the twisting growth rings and the swirling rays, a new universe is revealed.
