Los geniales flip-books mecanizados del artista neoyorquino Juan Fontanive.

Juan Fontanive makes films without using light. Often recycling the mechanical parts of found clocks and pushbikes as the portable containers of his ‘animations’, his interest lies in the beauty of sequential and repetitive movement. Hand drawn characters, human and typographical, occur in a cranky flip-book module powered by oxide. Pages fall in neat layers in the manner of a paper fountain, somewhere between film and sculpture – there is no ‘screen’ as such. His filmstock is often pulped card or metal leaves.
