The way they move is ... uncanny! In this short movie (1 minute, 34 seconds), stop-motion artist PES has created underwater fantasy creatures out of ordinary household items. What's more, he sets them interacting with each other, acknowledging a favorite theme of mine: our marine creatures are not just a collection of individual species arranged in a tree of Linnaean taxonomy. Rather, they interact: some attach to others, some eat others, some clean each other, some hide inside others (though in the movie, it was mainly eating).
What's more, his animations move in a way that's pretty convincing, modeling the characteristics of water, gravity and biology. The steampunk look of the creatures added a charm that gave this short movie polish and panache.
