Transflip is an experiment on how an object can be seen differently depending on its orientation and of its apparent scale. In the above stop motion animation the object is initially orientated in such a way as to reveal a section of a public building with multiple floors but as the video continues and the orientation is flipped, the object transforms to reveal a more private intention, that of a shelter.
