This Thing Of Ours created an experimental stop motion animation using a process called sub-surface engraving to launch its new design and animation studio. The process shines two laser beams at a cube, disrupting the crystal and creating a 3D image built from thousands of dots. Inspired by the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, This Thing of Ours designed a low poly astronaut and animated a run cycle with an infinitely looping moon surface. All 24 of the frames were then engraved into glass cubes.
