Toronto-based animator Kevin Parry has highlighted the beauty of ordinary fruits and vegetables in a way that’s oddly satisfying to watch. In a stop-motion video spotted by The Kids Should See This, various types of produce are whittled down to nothing (or next to nothing) as Parry makes thin slices to reveal the intricate patterns hidden within.

The video also offers a rare behind-the-scenes look at the animator’s process. After each laborious cut, Parry props up the fruit or vegetable and photographs it. Needless to say, it takes a lot of time and effort to create a 36-second clip. “This looks super tedious, but I actually had a lot of fun slicing them frame by frame and seeing the results come to life,” Parry wrote in the video description.

The individual frames were pieced together at the end and paired with sound effects. (He also created a similar video in February using Valentine's Day chocolate.) Check out the video below and visit Parry’s YouTube channel to see more stop-motion, animation, and illusion videos.
