The animation will be using stuff from our daily life as the subject, and by using the rotating parts to be the common factor, for example, the wheels of the car, the water tab, or even giving rotation to the parts that won’t turn. Usually our brain would emerge something familiar that have been imprinted in memories when it is triggered by something interesting.
