Japanese Animation

These are a few delightful animations from an art show on Japanese news channel NHK World. I can’t tell from the info on YouTube what the artists’ names are. God, but I’d love to have the patience to learn that language... Anyway, I think the first one is particularly enchanting. I actually saw the artist on the programme talking about the piece and I had to hunt it down. She showed how she made it by hand cutting many, many sheets of paper into the lace-like patterns you see and then layering them for effect. Watch it, it’s wonderful.
