“This compact, two-minute video intimates that animation films are, whether implicitly or explicitly, reflexive. Indeed, what remains esoteric in most if not all animation films, that the hand or the device that’s animating objects is itself being animated twenty-four still-frames per second, becomes exoteric in Graziella Rizkallah Toufic’s Follow My Hand Animated at 24 Still Frames Per Second (2010). More generally, does our perception animate what in reality although seeming animate is actually inanimate? Rather, the animation of our eyes and brains may itself be in the eye of an out of this world beholder!” (Jalal Toufic)
