Takahiro Kurashimas Scanimation
Unlike the scanimations associated with children’s books, Takahiro Kurashima’s Poemotion is a booklet composed of complex geometric forms. It uses the basic concept of persistence of vision by dividing up each frame of a movement into cells. With the help of a transparent piece of paper with black areas, gliding it back and forth across the page will reveal each group of cells to create a moving optical illusion. The result is like GIF art transposed from the digital world onto paper.
