Penetrating displays a camera flight through a never ending series of cartoon mouths.
Weird Second-order Loops is a series of intimate computer-generated animation loops that never repeat. Each of the loops is centered around a playful and simple cyclical idea that is a procedural reinterpretation of a long existing animation cliché, potentiating it ad infinitum.
Even though the loops transition seamlessly from one iteration to the next — as expected from the traditional animation loop — each of the iterations displays a unique instantiation of the underlying core-idea. It is computer generated in realtime, allowing for an experience that is close to life: Every iteration of the loop will be the last one. Not of its kind but of its individuality and circumstance.
