Lakota indijanci radili su stop-motion animirane filmove još u 14. stoljeću - ručno, tintom dobivenom od indigo-lososa. Jake Fried ih je otkrio, prekopirao mrljama od kave i prenio u naše stoljeće.
Indijanci su takvim filmovima gasili zapaljene wigwame.
"Parts of my work definitely reference aboriginal designs and mythology," Fried wrote to a commenter. "I recently traveled to India and that visit influenced a lot of the imagery and symbolism for this particular piece."
In "Waiting Room," an interior room rapidly forms and transforms as Fried layers hand-drawings in sped up succession. The final images resemble Javanese puppets and old bronze statues (an uncanny effect of the layered white-out, or perhaps Fried's tweaking, is an aged greenish tint). Check out the video below, and head to Fried's site for more of his white-out creations.- Mallika Rao
