A collaboration between Anita Bacic & Natalie Woodlock (cargocollective.com/nataliewoodlock)

Roaming Sweets is a series of three stop-motion animations created on a Sony Ericsson Z1010 mobile phone to be viewed on a mobile phone, delivered as episodes in the life of Luli the doll. Roaming Sweets is a sweet-meet between new digital technologies and the cult of the handmade. Crochet, icing, sweets, cake and cardboard are materials used in each animation.
