This animation by Rebeka Molnar is a wonderful mix of new and old – both in design and concept. Produced for Czech state TV channel CT2, it’s essentially a test card – graphics that used to run on TV channels when no programmes were being broadcast, back in the days before 24-hour television and channel-specific messages on Sky telling you that CBeebies won’t be back on til 6am.

In a modern twist though, this test card is for the channel's Internet broadcasts – to appear in those hours when CT2’s usual more-cerebral mix of documentaries, nature shows and films aren’t screening. The form used, however, is again in contrast to this. Rebeka is a stop-motion animator, and cut and built all of the elements from coloured paper.
