Atomic

Students from CCAD’s Motion for Illustrators worked together to develop this anthology-style short-film that visualizes elements from the periodic table. Each student animated four 6-second beats that visually explain a single element and a jury selected the most compelling animations for inclusion in this project.

Animation & Concepts: Daniel Frank, Thomas Chambers, Jenn Doty, Jessica Heitzenrater, Heather Miller, Samantha Pickett, Scott Schaaf, Jessica Wallace & Cydney Wiedenbeck.

A New History For Humanity: The Human Era

Feynman’s Building Blocks of Thermodynamics

Chemist Andrea Sella recalls Richard Feynman’s analogy explaining the conservation of energy.

A evolving negotiation over toy blocks between a mother and son comes together to illustrate the first law of thermodynamics.

There are many ways to describe the first law of thermodynamics, and many ways to explain it. In this unique animation, chemist Andrea Sella recalls one of Richard Feynman’s descriptions of the law. In a classic analogy, Feynman imagines a child with a set of building blocks, and a mother struggling to ensure he doesn’t lose any. Each day, the total number of blocks remains the same, although some do stray from their original location.

This consistent fact – that the blocks cannot be created or destroyed – allows the mother to calculate how many blocks are in a box without even looking. And this consistent fact, that energy itself is also always conserved, lays the foundation for one of physics’ greatest rules.
