The mesmerizing syncopation of 2000 silhouettes is “Katachi”, a video made by Polish animators Kijek & Adamski for Japanese indie-rock artist Shugo Tokumaru. “Katachi” means “shape” in Japanese. Each silhouette was extracted from PVC plates using a computer-controlled cutter. To see how they made this amazing animation watch the “Making of Katachi” video below, which is literally just as mesmerizing.
