Linomation Dehisce

This is a project for "The Art of Lost words"

I chose the Word Dehisce from a list of Lost words.

The Definition of Dehisce:
(biology) 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

This Printed Linomation (Hand carved Animation using Linoleum prints), was done using 296 individual pieces of carved Linoleum which are 10cm squared each.

Its made to a loop so it can go on forever. For Youtube i decided to loop it three times so that you can see the loop.
I animated both the Prints from the Linocuts, and the Linocuts themselves. I also made an Image from all the scans of the Linocut Prints.
The whole project took me around 500 hours.
