The Red Thread (赤い糸): A single line tells a story

Activities and adventures, pulling apart, coming together, the joys of childhood: In Kazuhiko Okushita‘s 2010 short titled Red Thread (赤い糸), an animated line stretches and curls from scene to scene, visualizing moments of youth, growing up, and circling back around again. The single stroke drawing technique, known as ippitsugaki in Japanese, takes on new visual and metaphorical possibilities when animated.
