"Vincent" — Tim Burton's early (1982) animated film

From Open Culture: "Back in 1982, [24-year-old] Tim Burton worked as an apprentice animator at Disney. Burton's style didn't quite fit with the Disney aesthetic and he independently created a short stop-motion animated film simply titled 'Vincent." The style of the storytelling has been called 'Dr. Seuss meets Edgar Allan Poe.' The piece tells the story of a young boy who wants to be Vincent Price, the Yale-educated actor who became a fixture in American horror films starting in the late 1930s. It runs six minutes and features Price himself providing the narration (transcript of the narrated text here.) Notably, Price later appeared in Burton's blockbuster 'Edward Scissorhands.'  Animation World Network took a much closer look at this early Burton work."

Compost Gnome

F

Giovanni Tomasini's gnome simply dissolves during one growing season, feeding the surrounding vegetation as it dies.

"Crafted by hand, each Mino is made from home-composted materials that have been packed into a gnome mold and then left to dry."
