Choreographic data visualization

Each shape in these compositions represents a body part's movement in a dance sequence. Utlizing a method of dance notation called Labanotation, I created a machine parseable database of choreography for a number of dances. With this data, I was able to create representative elements for isolated body parts in each dance. Suminagashi (Japanese marbling)  elements are collaged beneath, reflecting the imprint in time of ink's movement through water; just as the visualizations capture a dancer's movement through space.
