The Pinocchio animation is a repetitive and suggestive ripple movement. Two monochrome grey surfaces meet and draw a line by their tone difference.

It is this organic movement itself, and it alone, which is proposed, stolen from its context, and confronted with stakes in the field of Pictorialism.
