Choon Lin not only creates her own toys, she also makes experimental stop-motion animations across various disciplines, including drawing, sculpture and printmaking.

“I am interested in how things are made,” she says, “in particular, the activity of DIY, in which people are involved in a process of putting things or objects together for their own use. People invent their own methods or discover better ways of making things from various instructional guides and resources. A lot of my work comes from an interest in how things are made, fitting of joints, making things work together, and the way materials are manipulated and used.”

“I made the Extra Value Meal Transformer Toys with the intention of encouraging people to get into the process of making things. The toys are made by cutting and folding. Templates are available for download on the extravaluemeal site. Many things now can be bought conveniently off the shelves, and sometimes we do not even know how they came about. I hope we can all become more than just passive consumers, have more knowledge and control over the things we buy.”

Spotted! is a digest of fly work by fresh off creatives.
