Tape Generations – beautiful, but unbelievably laborious

An amazing animation by Johan Rijpma, who likes to study “the unpredictable environment”.

He says: “I worked on this project for about 6 months. I tried many different compositions and then made a selection. A single composition could take more than 12 hours to develop/breakdown (the spinning of the plate was done by hand, turning the plate about 0.4 degrees every 30 seconds, this meant I was standing in the wind and the rain for hours watching the tape “grow” and watching the sun come up/go down)”

I like the sound, too.
