Leaving LA | Tee Ken Ng and Tim Minchin
Film still of Tee Ken Ng’s zoetrope-animated video for Tim Minchin’s Leaving LA, 2020
Photographer: Tee Ken Ng
Presented as an installation of the swirling hand-made zoetropes that bring Minchin’s song Leaving LA to visual life, it reveals the unique and exquisite charm, art and craft of Ng’s animation practice.

Combined with live video projections of the zoetropes in action and an accompanying soundtrack, Ng creates a sense of being within the animation itself as the entire piece becomes a living artwork that will fully encompass you.

“Just when you think you've seen it all, something like this comes along and reminds you that there's no limit to how creative you can get.”
Beast Grip

"It is one of the most wonderful pieces of animation I have ever seen. The physical zoetropes alone are beautiful works of sculpture. The melding of art and science in making the characters come alive is breath-taking."
Tim Minchin
