Featuring a custom pop-up book, an animated video shows the journey water makes from sink to rain cloud.

Taking nearly a year to create, “Revolution” follows the path of a single paper water droplet as it journeys through its extensive lifecycle.

A joint effort of paper engineer and illustrator Helen Friel, photographer Chris Turner, and animator Jess Deacon, “Revolution” is an incredible illustration of the water cycle using a custom-made pop-up book and stop-motion animation. The video, which is less than two minutes and is composed of just nine scenes, took roughly 1,000 photographs to create, and the result is truly one of a kind.
