In the fall of 2016, the long-awaited third installment of Takahiro Kurashima’s series Poemotion has been published. In the previous edition, color was added; this time Kurashima goes back to the roots. Thirty abstract graphic and geometric shapes are brought to life by a black plastic foil. Only when it is laid on the paper do the shapes begin to dance, jump, spin, and weave, the reader experiencing the impressive moiré-effect in a playful way.
"The little man, sitting at the reception desk of the brain, is wondering: Are these dazzling appearances true or false? These illusions are real."Hans Knuchel, Artist and Designer, Zurich, Switzerland
