Below are some production stills from my 2D stop-motion animation entitled Wunderkammer. This short film was shot under camera using unarmatured, replacement paper cutouts. Release date: July 2018.
Madelaine’s cabinet of curiosities contained a collection of wonders to both delight and horrify. One item in particular captures the attention of its owner. A darkly-tinged sexual fantasy that explores the erotic-grotesque.
*A wunderkammer, also known as a “cabinet of curiosities” in English, is a place in which a collection of curiosities and rarities is exhibited. These were proto-museums, and were often found in the homes of wealthy, educated individuals who wished to demonstrate to their peers an interest and knowledge of science, etc. Wet specimens (like the octopus in the jar) and shrunken heads (called tsantsa) were popular set pieces in such cabinets.
