The New American uses 800 individual laser-cut maple blocks as frames in this stop-motion movie by designer Nando Costa .

Costa says:

The abstract storyline showcased in this piece is a concoction of a variety of ideas and can perhaps be described as a union between concepts and experiments born during the Situationist movement and real life events experienced during the last few years in American society. Particularly the duality between the economic downturn and the shift in values and beliefs of many citizens.
