Nico Livesey Manifests Hallucinations With Stop Motion Animation (Video)

First Posted: 10/26/11 05:16 AM ET   Updated: 12/20/11 05:12 AM ET

There may be something inherently childlike about about stop motion animation, but Nico Livesey's latest offering appeals to a deeper sensibility. The hypnotizing animation in the video below was made by creating an intricate block of color patterns out of plasticine and cutting them out in 2 millimeter increments for each frame.

The materials are crude, but the depth of movement and transformation still captivate the imagination. View Livesey's "Ratin Gorleg" below and watch the rest of Livesey's demented shorts on his Vimeo page.
