Flip Birds

Some beautifully hand drawn flipbook animations by Juan Fontanive. Via MyModernMet:

By salvaging mechanical parts from clocks and bicycles, the artist is able to construct individual containers for his mechanized animations. Fontanive’s objective with his motorized machines is to create a visual sense of motion that is more physical than digital. One of his works states:

“Responding to the lack of movement found in our current electronics age, he is interested in actual movement in relation to virtual. His machines long to free images; they combine to form a medium in themselves exploring the vividness of living things.”
