Electric Literature's Single Sentence Animations

I'm a huge fan of these single sentence animations from newbie, boat-rocking literary magazine Electric Literature. Not only because it's a cool idea (asking writers to choose a favorite sentence from their stories, and then asking artists to animate them) but because the videos are so fun to watch! The latest was posted just yesterday, a claymation interpretation from artist Donna K. of a sentence from Lydia Davis' story "Cows." Check it out here.

I considered posting the sentence to whet your appetite, but part of the joy is watching it reveal itself over the course of the video. Bet you can't watch just one.
