VIDEO: Match Ignites Onion, Marriage

Fo

For our new Single Sentence Animation, J. Robert Lennon has chosen a sentence from his story “Hibachi” that depicts a turning point in Phillip and Evangeline’s marriage: the night she reveals she is one furious Hibachi master.

The sentence: “And then, with a motion so swift and subtle it was hard to be certain that it had happened, she pulled a wooden match from a pocket, scraped it against the exhaust hood, and set the onion alight.”

(Animation and sound by Benk)

You can read the rest of the story in Electric Literature no. 5. Electric Literature is available on any viable platform (yes, even paper!), visit our store page or download our free App from iTunes.
