The Assembly of Animals
Arts channel dedicated to capturing the weird, radical and wonderful. See more videos at Summerhall TV →
Combining puppetry, magic and scientific-demonstration, The Assembly of Animals gives a glimpse into the inner workings of a laboratory looking for life in everyday objects. As a performed sculpture, a series of delicately composed experiments reveal a proliferating system of surprises and animals within animals.
Tim is an artistic inventor, and uses basic physics and a surrealist imagination to create this carefully constructed and delicate world, leaving children entertained throughout.
