Animation: Carlo Vogele’s For Sock’s Sake

BLOG sock header

A short animated film using socks (and apparently magnets) to brilliant effect.I found this while reading AVA’s new Animation title, Animated Performance. There’s a whole section on fabric and cloth characters, and it has some stills from Carlo Vogele’s For Sock’s Sake video. There’s also an email from Vogele, explaining his methods. Apparently they’re his own socks… I love the laundry room/torture chamber!
