I make stop-motion animations as a way to experiment with a story and the materials. Sometimes they lead to other ideas through metamorphosis and surprising  discoveries. Once the mosaic pieces have been cut and played with in this way, I am free to make the final mosaics. Other times I make the animation from the final mosaic.

I have also made several  other animations and videos that I haven’t included on this page, as they are for specific projects. You can see the Zillion videos here   http://katerattray.wordpress.com/category/videos/zillion-videos/  and the Sweat and Tears videos on the blog too.

You can view all my videos  on  http://www.youtube.com/user/TheKaterattray
