“In the space of 10 minutes, the African baobab grows 0.008 mm, the greyhound, the fastest dog in the world, can run 12 km and the Earth travels 18,000 km around the sun. Movements is a 10-minute animated film that I drew at a rate of 2 seconds of animation per day. We are all walking, seeing, working, running, and stopping together”. (Dahee Jeong)

Piece of Meat
