Issue 3’s cover artist Sarah Bodil, animated Seth Fried’s The Adventure of the Space Traveler for Electric Literature’s Single Sentence Animations.

The sentence: ‘In the resulting explosion, Barington was thrown out like a dart into the vacuum of space at roughly five thousand feet per second.’
Single Sentence Animations are creative collaborations. The writer selects a favorite sentence from his or her work and the animator creates a short film in response.
