Stop-motion animation made by photographing and rephotographing antique kimono resist-dyeing stencils in positive and negative. Spatial shifts and variations in the repeating pattern elements generate apparent motion. Photographed in Super 8. Hand processed in Matchanal (Uji powdered green tea, Vitamin C, Washing Soda).
