Plumb by Caleb Wood is an unusual animation that was drawn freehand frame by frame on a gallery wall. What at first appears like a series of modern hieroglyphics is actually each frame that comes to life as soon as it is filmed appropriately. The artist, who graduated from RISD in 2011 with a BFA in Film, Animation and Video, refers to the art piece as a "gallery animation installation" and "a continuous vertical freehand digression."

Located at Prøve Gallery in Duluth, Minnesota, Plumb by Caleb Wood depicts objects morphing into different forms as the camera pans horizontally from one side to the next. Although the film brings it to life, seeing the illustration in person would be worth it.
