A shot of a real hand changes into a drawn image that develops and extrapolates outside the set boundaries of a grid and outside clearly established points. Experimenting with the transformation of the image – deformation occurs irregularly but, at the same time, submits to a clearly established system.


At the beginning of this short film a white page is turned and the hand of the artist finishes extrapolating a line through a grid. But at the moment the line passes beyond the set boundaries of the grid, the real hand morphs into drawn animation, and firmly fixed points begin to lose their clear location. The film plays with transforming the image, whose deformation occurs irregularly but, at the same time, submits to a clearly established system.

Johan Rijpma (b. 1984) is a visual artist living in Utrecht in the Netherlands. In his experimental films he makes use of video, animation, and photography, which serve as instruments for an artistic game in which he places often simple objects into unexpected contexts.
