Storm P. Inventions

Jørgen Vestergaard, Denmark, 2001

15 min.DK/DocumentaryPuppet films, Animation

This puppet film recreates some of Danish humorist Storm P.'s popular cartoons - the so-called "inventions". A "Storm P. Invention", is how Danes would describe a highly complicated technical design. The design of these apparatuses reflects an original satirical view on a society obsessed by efficiency and technocratization. The fun is derived from the lack of proportion between the diminutive scale of the problem and the incomprehensible complexity of Storm P.'s solution.
