There’s a lot you can do with a 3 hour chunk of your day. For filmmaker Keith Skretch, that meant planing down a block of wood one layer at a time to create this mesmerizing stop-motion video. As each layer gets shredded to saw dust, each of the imperfections become their own little abstract dance:
To create this strata-cut animation, I planed down a block of wood one layer at a time, photographing it at each pass. The painstaking process revealed a hidden life and motion in the seemingly static grain of the wood, even as the wood itself was reduced to a mound of sawdust.
