Baltimore City Paper

Baltimore City Paper wrote a really touching article about our work displayed at Sondheim Semi-Finalist exhibition.
The whole article can be read HERE .

Excerpt- written by Baynard Wood

Tiny Inventions (the name of a collaboration between Ru Kuwahata and Max Porter) offer a couple different mixed-media animations that are featured in the actual miniature bakery and the characters that people ‘Between Times,’ their video based on the temporal ruminations of Alan Lightman’s book “Einstein’s Dream.” The short trailer, coming in at just over a minute, is gorgeous, as each of the characters who enter the bakery has a different sense of time. It shows, as all art in some way should, the wonder that we all exist on the same plane at all, causing the viewer to marvel at her own consciousness. And yet, the figures and sets that populate these stop-motion films are also cloyingly cute. They are somehow reminiscent of early HBO shows such as “Fraggle Rock” and recent offerings such as “Hugo,” while being wholly original. Another film, ‘Something Left, Something Taken,’ uses similar figures to create a moment of true menace.
