Japanese artist reinvents traditional folding screen with digital animation | Design | Dezeen



This one-minute video shows how artist Yusuke Shigeta has updated a traditional Japanese art form using digital modelling techniques.

This animated screen, titled Folding Screen of Painted Sekigahara Landscapes, breathes life into a historical artwork.

The piece references the 17th-century folding screen The Battle of Sekigahara, which depicts one of the most notable wars in Japanese history. The original work is held in the Osaka Museum of History.

Shigeta used digital modelling techniques to recreate the scene through animation.

3D modelling and crowd simulation was used to create the movement of over 500 different characters.

From a bird's-eye perspective, viewers can pick out characters charging into battle, sparring swords or carrying out food preparation in the barracks.
Natural details from the original historic sites, such as the tall grasses that flower throughout the battlefield, were also incorporated into the final piece.

The artwork is currently on display in the Chubu Centrair International Airport in central Japan.
