Connected: A Charming Stop-Motion Papercraft Music Video Inspired by the Universe


We are all stardust.

As a lover of books, papercraft, and the universe (and, especially, papercraft books about the universe), I was instantly smitten by this lovely music video for the song “Connected” by singer-songwriter Luke Dick, from his album Abraço (iTunes) — a heartening homage to our shared stardust, featuring papercraft by artist Benjamin Wright Coleman.

Abraço is wonderful in its entirety. Sample it below, then pair with Carl Sagan on books and the sublime You Are Stardust.

Thanks, Jenn
