I visited the New York museum of sex and there was an exhibit by this artist - Mike Sullivan. He is making a claymation-esque movie about the sex life of robots. I was transfixed by the models (thy sell 'em at 800$ a piece) and the movie. Pretty hardcore, if you are a robot: (NSFW)

I loved it and will buy the DVD (and merchandise, if i can afford) when it comes out.

Also, today, I found another SFW artist using junk from his house to make models:

Truly ascending in the man-machine world!

That movie showed up on youtube a while back, but it got taken down. I think that video's awesome, mostly because I'm a huge geek for stop-motion animation.

Here's a brief behind the scenes interview sort of thing that's pretty interesting:

Amazing! A Time lapse of a stop-motion! Ths guy is a genius. And to think they are all just Barbies inside!

OK, this was all fine, but where are the actual movies? An ex-stop-motion animator wants to see the result!

Heheh, the best use I've seen for Barbies yet. I would love to see the end result too!
