Walking in Circles
Mindful walking: revealing embodied, grounded geometries, in the Motion Capture Studio, at University of Central Lancashire.
We used motion capture technology to transcribe walking movements, as steps were overlaid in time and space. In this case, multiple reflective markers were attached to each foot.
The delicate qualities of the spiral form made visible in this way, appear as though ‘stitched’ in to, or ‘woven’ on to the ground, with each footstep.
Once the palimpsest spiral is completed, the other ‘end’ of it begins to unravel…
The first mo-cap sequence zooms in from various angles. And in the sequence below, the walking is seen from one side only:
Standing at the centre: connective geometries.
In Mo-cap studio: multiple camera views converging.
