In this hand drawn animation a line is being extrapolated through a grid. When the line, drawn by a real hand, surpasses the boundaries of the grid, the process spreads to and reflects on its surroundings. Beyond each boundary the extrapolation of movement is causing deformation in a systematic but speculative way. The project tries to reflect on the limits of what can be predicted and understood through methodical and linear thinking.
