HD Video (stop motion) 2:39 min

A stop motion video documenting the detail deviations in the wood grain slope of a standard spruce beam. Starting from one end, the animation progresses through the spruce beam in a series of cross sections. Each frame capturing the beam before it is sawn down a fraction at a time. As the animation grows in length the wooden beam diminishes, until the last section is sawn and the spruce beam comes to an end.
