This film is a short visual narrative of the research undertaken by Alice Humphrey into identifying and cataloguing the different patterning methods used to create effects of shading, moiré and motion on katagami as part of the Arts Council England Funded project Katagami in Practice: Japanese Stencils in the Art School run by the Museum of Domestic Design and Architecture from 2016-2018.

The research led to her developing a pattern replication applet to allow viewers to interact with images and alter variables to observe the impact of pattern movement, scale and spacing on the perception of tonal range.
