Geometrical Poetry

Poemotion by Takahiro Kurashima (2)

Art director Takahiro Kurashima has designed an interactive book entitled “Poemotion.” He uses the Moire technique, which basically is a visual effect that occurs when viewing a set of lines overlapping another set of lines. In other words, this has to be mathematically planned out from the striped vertical bars printed on an acetate sheet to the geometrical patterns printed on a book page. When combining the two, you are able to see the shapes move around. It is incredible!

Kurashima’s book can be purchased at Amazon.

Notes about the designer (from bio):

While creating an array of commercial works for a variety of clients as Art Director at advertising agency Dentsu since 1993, Kurashima also keeps exploring the possibility and unconventional viewpoints of graphic art with his personal works including silkscreen print art, books, and posters.
