I created a new flip book called Morphing City Hall as part of Flip-Toronto. Eight artists chose sites around Toronto and made flip books about them. The flip books were shown on the TTC Subway Video Screens from August 4 to 19, 2012. I chose Toronto City Hall. You can see it here. Click on the image below to see hands flipping the book.
