Luck of the Draw – Conscripted 19,548

By Liam Hoffman

Part of the Luck of the Draw project

Conscripted 19,548 is a semi-psychedelic flurry of scenes of ‘minimal moments’ between the ballot box and the battlefield. Artist Liam Hoffman uses a mix of hand-drawn, stop-motion animation and motion tracking to illustrate core conscription themes such as the ballot, getting a medical check the order to the battlefield, drawn from a ballot, a card arriving by post.
