Tim Burton at the MoMA


The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) approached Big Spaceship to create an online kiosk experience that would showcase the wide spectrum of Tim Burton’s artwork. Techniques used in the making of this website were inspired by Tim Burton’s earlier stop motion films. With a hands-on approach, we constructed model staircases with foam board and conducted stop-motion tests. In the final product, the navigational framework for the site was all hand drawn and animated frame by frame. The sum of these techniques assisted us in capturing Tim Burtons’ dark and whimsical aesthetic.
