400 ways of looking at a magnolio fruit – drawing and stop motion

I drew over and over the same magnolia fruit I had found during the first days of my residency in Cordoba. The format is tiny, and they are all fast drawings. I intended to see and capture the same event in different ways, like when you tell a story and you realise you can narrate it by following infinite directions. Afterwards, I scanned the four hundred drawings and made a stop motion, which was screened in the patio where the magnolia tree is.
