Jim Jenkins

Part sculptor, part engineer, and part choreographer, Jim Jenkins' work primarily features the animation of text and objects to represent a situation or an observation. Inspirations also come from simple movements often found in nature, such as the rhythmic flapping of a bird's wings to the hypnotic swaying of a cat's tail.
