Jim Jenkins
http://www.jimjenkins.net/

Part sculptor, part engineer, and part choreographer, Jim Jenkins'
work primarily features the animation of text and objects to represent
a situation or an observation. Inspirations also come from simple
movements often found in nature, such as the rhythmic flapping of a
bird's wings to the hypnotic swaying of a cat's tail.

See you there!
