Mesmerizing Animation of the Day: The Rise and Fall of a Paper City

As this video shows, an urban space is beautiful, complex, and fragile.

It might be the whimsical music and pure colors, or the impressive techniques of the artist, or just the satisfaction of seeing something arise from nothing. Whatever it is, this minute-long long animation from London-based animator Maciek Janicki makes for a captivating way to experience the life and death of a city. 

The project, modeled and filmed digitally using Cinema 4D, took the artist four months to complete.
