Reverse Mitosis is a print series and a stop motion animation created to dance the fine line between digital and tactile mediums. The full animation is composed of almost 500 individually screen printed shapes.​​​​​
In order to evoke the sense that the shapes had three-dimensional depth, I created each polyhedron digitally. I rotated the shapes how I wanted them to move, image-capturing them at every incremental stage, and then screen printed the shapes onto sheets of paper. Then, I cut each frame out by hand and scanned them back into a digital space, including the imperfections from cutting and printing. Each shape then became part of a larger frame, which were stitched together in Adobe After Effects.
