Linomation! (Linoleum Animation)

This animation, created with 296 (!) individual hand-carved linoleum prints, is beautiful, and reminds me of the work that students have done in our monoprinting classes (led by monoprint master Jaime Ursic). The artist says:

"This project is all about words in the English language and artists' interpretations of words that are not used so much anymore, and there are some pretty strange ones. I chose the word "dehisce", which means 'release of material by splitting open of an organ or tissue; the natural bursting open at maturity of a fruit or other reproductive body to release seeds or spores or the bursting open of a surgically closed wound.'"
