Stems is a beautiful and slightly melancholy stop-motion animation by Ainslie Henderson, created using music by Poppy Ackroyd.

Oh I love stop motion! This was cute and wonderful, and a little sad like he says in the video.

Saw an interview with Henderson a while back about which led me to 'Monkey Love Experiments' ... which is extraordinary

I loved the video, but I really loved Poppy Ackroyd's music and have been listening to it all day now. Her art feels like the subtle undercurrent to all of my moods and I am just so so so thrilled to find her :D

That broke my heart. And If I think about it it doesn't make sense why, but it did. And I can't figure out if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

This is super wonderful. Thank you. And doubly so, for introducing me to Poppy Ackroyd’s music.
