"Extrapolate" Is an Animated Video That Will Make Your Head Spin

August 08, 2018

In this hand drawn animation a line is being extrapolated through a grid--and the results are a strange, mind-boggling animation that may get your head spinning a bit. The artist Johan Rijpma writes of this piece: "When the line surpasses the boundaries of the grid, the process spreads to and reflects on its surroundings. Beyond each boundary the extrapolation of movement is causing deformation in a systematic but speculative way." This animation was created during the ”Animation Artist in Residence Tokyo 2016” part of the Agency for Cultural Affairs, Government of Japan (Bunka-cho) ”Project to invite overseas creators of media arts 2016”, the Mondriaan Fund and The Netherlands Film Fund.
