Bendy, twisty and shoot-the-chute fun, we created all kinds of tube magic. In one spot a tube is a vacuum, pulling balls, blocks and triangles up and out in a spray of confetti. In another, tubes roll and twist like macaroni in a playground of shapes. “What if,” we thought, “we popped something down the tube and it came out transformed into something completely different?”
Our animations made it happen: Some shapes went in flat and came out 3D, others morphed into new shapes entirely. Unexpected, fun, and full of “How dids?” and “What ifs?” we look forward to making many more of these animations for the National Children’s Museum, to inspire kids’ creative thinking.
