A MATCHSTICK WITH A BUTT or SOCIAL DISTANCING FLIPBOOK

A couple of weeks ago I introduced Anaiya and Jaanu to the idea of flipbooks. We did a basketball bouncing from one end of the page to the other. Then we added clouds. The birds flying across the top and into the distance.

It was garbage.

But it was still fun to watch their eyes light up with the motion that basic 1st grade level animation created.

Storytelling is powerful. If a word is the basic unit of thought, and a picture is 1,000 of those units, well, pictures in motion are some exponential function.

But the narrative that binds them is what makes them meaningful. Those units get worth and value from the context, order, narrative.

#iamgrateful and #iamthankful I saw this flip book. It hooks you. It makes you stop. It gives an analogue (matches as dominoes for a spreading virus).

And then the match gets a butt and you’re like “wait wha?”

Still kinda dope:
