The stop motion action begins with a reader making her choice from a bookshelf - all very traditional you might think. Yet this is also an animation very much of our time - you should not naturally assumed that the book itself is made of paper - or indeed that paper books have to behave in a manner which we might expect. For that matter it pulls together the ways in which we read in this day and age in to a great composite so that in some ways you may not know (or mind) where the paper ends and where the electronic book begins.
This is a thoroughly enjoyable piece by animator Irina Neustroeva which manages to be paper light at the same time as offering up some really quite meaty food for thought. Superbly done.
