An animated depiction of the last days and final destination of a P. rotundus specimen, part of my 8-Bit Labs series of sculptures.

Each piece is based on a classic videogame character as seen through the prism of real-life anatomy. They are rendered in clay, painted with acrylics and sealed in resin to give the appearance of a specimen preserved in formaldehyde. Seen here is a Pakku rotundus, which is based on Pac Man.

Sculpture, art and animation by Jaime Margary

Music: "Wake and Bake" by Definite One
Guitar: Emma X, Bass: Jason Armstrong
Conceptual arrangement by Jaime Margary

Special thanks to my friends for lending me a hand and to Valencia Community College for letting me use their lab and specimens for the shoot.
