Project Statement

by J. Drucker


The idea of using the rapid, time-collapse photography of the flip book as a way to show family history is very funny. But taking the idea as a pun, and making the "raising" into a simple "rising" on the page, allowed Gleber to use a single image and progress it up the sheet. The result is smart, and surprising, and the stop-motion page-by-page animation took some work. The flip book genre is a favorite, maybe because the interaction reveals something the static book does not. This is a small gem of the genre.
