TAKAHIRO KURASHIMA: POEMOTION. Verlag Lars Muller, Baden, 2012. 36 pp. with 30 ills. 22 x 17 cm. ISBN 9783037782774 In English.
Publisher's description: Poemotion is an interactive book-object. The abstract graphical patterns in this small volume are set in motion as soon as you move the attached special foil across them: moire effects allow complex forms to develop, set circles in motion, and make graphical patterns vibrate. Inspired by Seesaw, an earlier book from the publisher and in a playful yet minimalist fashion the Japanese designer Takahiro Kurashima establishes a link to the motif of a "School of Seeing" that has long occupied a special place in the program of Lars Muller Publishers. With this book the viewer can discover how, as if by magic, figures and forms are created out of optical overlays, set in motion, and then disappear again. In the era of digitalization this book shows that interactivity is also possible in the format of the analog, bound book.
