The Thingmaker by Julien Lasseur

A touching story of reinvention.
From the website:
For Richard Griggs, art is survival. After narrowly escaping a horrific bicycle hit and run and after a three day comma, Richard had to relearn how to walk, talk and eat. Today, the process of creating art keeps his brain functioning and his body alive.

"It's cool that my kids can look at work as not as something you dread. But they can see that work can really be inspiring and gives you joy and energy... I can just be excited. It was a good day. I created something."

There are benefits to waking before dawn, sitting in the silence, and bringing a camera along. Enjoy!

Book Sculpture: Lands Away

This stop motion film has some creative examples of book sculpture.
By Katie Wynkoop:
"My thesis work is a reflection and a celebration of the impact that literature, and fairy tales in particular, have made on our culture. It looks at the ways in which certain stories have become a part of the collective consciousness, to the point where they can be recognized at a glance.Well-known themes from fairy tales are created as sculptures constructed of books and then brought to life using stop-motion animation, creating a short movie that visually presents the intangible images normally held within the words on a book’s page."
