Kristen Lauth Shaeffer is an artist and filmmaker from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania who is behind the fascinating 349 project, a stop-motion animation showcasing a choreographed dance made up of more than 300 hand-drawn frames. 

The project was developed over two years with the help of more than 300 hundred people, each of whom added their own drawing to the animation by depicting their version of a personal relationship. The collaborative effort results in a thought-provoking piece.
