Andrew Grant Adaptive Reuse, 2015 Stop-motion Animation Video Running time: 1 minute

This improvisational animation was made with junk found scattered around UIC campus, and my neighborhood Washington Park. Many of the scenes are site specific, shot on the fly based on what materials presented themselves. I used stop-motion because it requires a hands-on approach, and I wanted to maintain the materiality of the objects that were being repurposed from their junk/trash context. In this sense, the film is about adding new value through attention and reuse.
