Reinventing the Wheel


HD video, stereo sound, 3 minutes 15 seconds

Reinventing the Wheel is a stop motion animation in which a poem plays out on a gameboard such as seen on TV’s Wheel of Fortune. As the contestants guess at phrases (and prizes), the doll-like hostess who turns their guessed letters becomes a medium for her own message to the host and all you viewers at home.
