Project Description
Movement => Balloons
1811 Danforth Ave

Movement => Balloons is an installation which brings together dance, sculpture, and photography. Using a depth camera and custom software, the movement of a dancer is converted into a 3D computer model, which then serves as the basis for a balloon sculpture. Upon completion of the installation, the dancer is photographed alongside it. By manifesting a dancer's movement through their own medium, the sculpture and the photograph therefore become static physical representations of the dance.
