E=MC ³

In this surrealist dreamscape based on actual events, “E=MC³” is a tale of Albert Einstein’s invention and patenting of the perpetual motion refrigerator that brings peace to the Middle East. The animation combines fantastic imagery with tongue-in-cheek storytelling and plenty of schtick.

This story had its genesis in the strange but true account of Einstein’s work on a highly efficient refrigerator designed while in Berlin circa 1920s. This remarkable story combines Stabin’s long-running love affair with public Radio with a narrative that unfolds through an NPR-style radio interview – an interview conducted by a talking clam voiced by Dave Davies of NPR’s “Fresh Air.”
