This film takes the bold yet graceful line of classical Japanese patterns and puts in into motion. Much of the rapid progression of intersections, warps and rotations was left to a modeling program to decide; intentional human controls were purposefully kept to a minimum. The pseudo-coincidences generated by the software create a serendipitous aesthetic similar to the cracks etched in Japanese ceramics by the firing kiln.
