Puppets, people, tech & art

I love this letter from Lisa Henson. It's about Dave McKean & Neil Gaimen's new movie, Mirrormask, but really it's about the nature of puppetry.

The idea of controlling 3-D puppets via computers - which we've seen developing through
Sheep in the City to Gollum and Kong - just reminds me that as long as the audience for something is human, human performers are what we're going to get a buzz out of watching.

Anyway, you'll have to scroll down a little bit - it starts at the second block of bold type.
