Come to the Exploratorium October 30th to celebrate International Animation Day with amusing and inventive works from all around the world. Dice, graph paper, rolls of scotch tape, and even a couple of guys with crazy facial hair are fodder for stop-motion animation wizardry in the Pupf-Phew! program. Chicken eggs will dazzle you, a snarky dog will tickle your funny bone, and those pieces of cardboard that you put out for recycling . . . well, they’re alive! Curated by Sarah Klein and David Kwan of Stop & Go and Croatian Cultural Exchange in partnership with Jasminka Bijelić Ljubić of the School for Animated Film (ŠAF) in Čakovec, Croatia.
