Wendy and Karin formed a pact to work together to reach a goal that Karin had always had, to animate these 'creatures'. Wendy, an artist and puppeteer, has the skills to accomplish this.
Both continued their day jobs.
First email exchange: August 2012
First project: A video using puppetry to directly animate three textile sculptures. The storyline and narration was suggestive of a BBC Wildlife Documentary, based on the work done with Sir David Attenborough. However, here the narration was presented in an extremely dull style to indicate how boring science often appears to the general public.
