Animated in Cardboard: Stop-Motion Modern Dance

Sometimes the most inspiring videos are only brief glimpses of brilliance. Rogier Wieland’s stop-motion animation, The Modern Dance, is just such a piece – lasting only 1 short minute, but packing a whole lot of visual inspiration onto those few seconds. Using many layers of cardboard cutouts, his tiny figure gracefully moves across the screen in near realistic fashion – even while clearly being made of roughly cut paper.


Wieland recently gained much recognition for his stop-motion work with Moleskine, creating a far longer piece using their brightly colored notebooks. The Modern Dance was created over a year ago, along with his piece The Audience (featured below), but they haven’t garnered their deserved attention until now. For a full look at his collection, be sure to check out Wieland’s extensive Vimeo page, then see this Dutch artists gorgeous paper craft work on his personal website.
