This thesis creates a short-form art piece primarily using modular 3D printed forms, photographed in a stop-motion animation style, and composited digitally into a finished product. It creates the lab space needed to print and photograph the piece; including lighting, set, and photography equipment. This project shows that it is possible for a single artist to come up with sufficient time-saving techniques in order to complete an entire work from start to finish. This work also shows it is possible to create a work that will inspire the emotions of fear, horror, and frustration that comes with the birth of the new.
