BodyGRAPH: silkscreen printing, drawing, video

BodyGRAPH is a visual study of the human body, its potential, limitations and predispositions. The piece is based on the differences in music interpretations and body conditions of its participants. People involved in this project were asked to dance to one song while being videotaped. I used the footage to track and mark the trajectory of each dancer’s left hand. The black and white graphs represent those movements. I believe that the variations in body structure of each dancer determined to some extent the outcome of these graphs. To further illustrate that, each dancer’s body was also documented similar to topographic elevation map, with the measurements taken across the same body parts. Together the movement drawings and “topographic” measurements constitute a comparative documentation of human condition.
