Collage is definitely up there amongst the plasticines and the papier machés on my list of top ten media, and this short animation by Amy Lockhart and Marc Bell only makes me like it even more. It was made a grand total of five years ago which is basically a lifetime in the online world, and though Amy is still busily animating, painting and drawing like nobody’s business this is still the film in her portfolio that I love the most.
It’s a simple premise; a split-pin puppet hand compiles the collage of dreams, which continues to morph, spin and cluck away to itself even as the hand is moving it around, but something about the poignant combination of sound (sticking, slurping, smoking and sliding all included) and the gorgeous lo-fi aesthetic make it enduringly charming. Just see if you don’t agree with me.
