The Ainu people constitute an indigenous population of Hokkaido, Northeast of Honshu, Sakhalin, Kuril Islands and Kamchatka Peninsula. KAPARAMIP, CICIRI, TETARAPE and RUUNPE refer to different types of kimonos and patterns made by Ainu creators. Patterns are designed, according to the different regions and families, with shaped cut-out clothes, white or colored, and embroideries. These patterns might be inspired by forms from nature, connected to the Ainu daylife and their spirituality. The four animations are a tribute to this art, giving life to elementary forms that evolve infinitely by repetition, dancing in rhythm with the traditional Ainu music Ukouk.

"Sirki" meen "pattern" in Ainu language.
The project consist in a small collection of 4 films around 2 min.
