A drawing - based research on postdigital visualization.
Rudolf Laban (1879-1958) was the most important movement theorist of the twentieth century and the founding father of modern dance in central Europe. He considered human movement in the contexts of science and art, embracing a continuum from nature to spirituality. His lifelong study of movement gave rise to an integrated and holistic system for observing, describing and notating movement and it's interrelationship with human expression.
A visualization of concept sharing within a small group deployed at Interactive Futures 2007. Participants send text messages which are mapped according the frequency from bottom to top. Each participant is represented as a Milkweed seed with as many strands as text messages submitted. The seeds float in a simulated wind and are lofted by their own text submissions as they intersect. Seeds with more strands have more levity. Seeds with similar submissions are attracted to one another.
