(Video link here.) Oscar-nominated stop motion animator PES’s strange brilliance lies in his ability to envision ordinary materials to become the quirky worlds of his crazily imaginative films. Here lace makes up the ocean floor, antique skeleton keys a school of fish, beads the swaying seaweed, and big clanky clamps and wrenches becomes a big gobbly fish.

Are you alive? 
I touch you. 
You quiver like a sea-fish. 
I cover you with my net. 
What are you—banded one?
          —The Pool, BY H. D.
