Dark Mixer is a short loop animation. The concept of Dark Mixer is "transformation." I got the idea for this clip from alchemy. I believe that rotoscope animation and alchemy are similar in a way where you take an existing piece/object, add something to it, and create something completely new. The idea behind the title is to take everyday things and dump them into the mixer/blender to create something that is unfamiliar to us. It may lead us to look at everyday life in a different way.
