    Do you know the work of Robert Sabuda? His pop-up books have been a staple of our gift giving for years and they never cease to amaze and amuse us.

    When I recover I might come back and tell you how awesome this is!

    Thanks for sharing JES.

    It is lovely that the pages are all white. I like white on white as a rule.

    I realise watching that the work is not so much the book or paper cutouts but the projection. Projection is a funny business, I say funny in the magical/trickery sense. Looking at art works over the years (I don’t mean film projections so much, rather art works consisting of projections) that use projection I often think that a key part of its success or failure as a medium is the artists understanding of its effect on scale. The Icebook people have been thinking about scale and thats is the nub of this performance.

    (I can’t resist adding I find the music in the video distracting but I suppose this is the promo and they are hoping for bums on seats so the dramatic music is a must. sigh)

    @John – I’ve been wanting a video camera for the longest time. I even know what I want to do if I can ever get one. Though my idea isn’t as beautiful as The Icebook. And I really, really wish i could figure out how to get the claymation short film my mother made in the 70s online so you could see it. Sigh.

    So glad you enjoyed this, John. A very small recompense for the countless wonders you have introduced to me.
