Artists Get Serious With LEGO

By Kasia Cieplak-Mayr von Baldegg

PBS's Off Book web series interviews three artists who use the plastic toy pieces as a medium for creative expression. From stop-motion animation to life-sized sculptures of animals, Sean Kenney, Alex Kobbs, and Nathan Sawaya talk about the visual potential of LEGOs. The documentary was produced for PBS by the production studio Kornhaber Brown

Check out Kobbs's two-minute stop-motion short, Bricks of War, below:
