The New American: An Abstract Stop Motion Animation Laser Cut onto 800 Blocks of Wood by Nando Costa

October 24, 2013

Christopher Jobson

Created by designer Nando Costa (previously) The New American is a painstakingly crafted motion graphics animation that was laser cut into a series of 800 individual maple blocks, a process that took nearly two years. Of the work Costa says:

The abstract storyline showcased in this piece is a concoction of a variety of ideas and can perhaps be described as a union between concepts and experiments born during the Situationist movement and real life events experienced during the last few years in American society. Particularly the duality between the economic downturn and the shift in values and beliefs of many citizens.

Several frames from the animation are currently available over on Etsy. (via Vimeo Staff Picks)
