inspiration for patterns


I was looking at some rhythmnic gymnastics videos on youtube the other day (some are posted on my dance film page), and it got me thinking about the motion path of my feet, I thought about trying to get hold of a ribbon and attaching it to my feet to see if it would produce any results as beautiful as the gymnasts… but it seemed unlikely, with two people dancing it would just get tangled up. Instead, I attatched lights to my feet and put my camera on a tripod set to a slow shutter speed… I was quite pleased with the pictures, but I’m not sure yet how the patterns can be incorporated into my project. Perhaps it will be possible to mathematically recreate some of the parabolic shapes for projection.
