By Takahiro Kurashima
Following the worldwide success of his Poemotion trilogy, artist and designer Takahiro Kurashima's latest book delights the eye with ingenious visual play.
This interactive book features a visual narrative that is revealed when basic static images are set in motion through the use of an included striped foil manipulated by the reader/viewer. An astonishing panorama of unseen moirés and patterns unfolds. Figures and forms are created out of optical overlays, set in motion, and then disappear again.
Kurashima deploys the digital tools for his creations with tremendous virtuosity while also evoking and alluding to the rich precedents of kinetic art. Moirémotion offers contemplative recreation for readers' eyes.
