Benjamin Stephan and Christoph Haag created the video above by animating onto various powdered substances — one looks like salt, another like powdered graphite — frame by frame, with a precise mechanical drawing device called a pen plotter. It’s mesmerizing, and I could watch for a lot longer than its 40-second length. The making-of below reveals […]
