The matchstick animations of Tomohiro Okazaki

Tomohiro Okazaki has a long running series of eye-popping stop-motion animations using three simple ingredients: a matchstick, some paper, and a magic red dot.

Recently, Okazaki incorporated the word MATCH in place of the dot, and today’s piece is an exemplar of the form:

A stack of paper with a red-ink illustration showing the word MATCH in what appears to be the long beam of a flashlight.
