Nerd Love!

I love Adam Savage not least for his unabashed nerdiness — and his infectious enthusiasm for other nerds and their work.

Barnaby Dixon is a stop-motion animator turned puppeteer, who's devised his own puppet techne. Which is interesting in its own right, and doubly so for what it lets him achieve artistically.

In a video posted earlier today, Barnaby and some of his puppets visit Adam in his shop. And in the ensuing discussion of Barnaby's techniques and the art he makes with them, Adam's enthusiasm gets turned up to 11. The video is joy to watch.

After fifteen years on LJ, I have joined the great exodus. It's lovely over here. Join me!
