in these bodies we will live,
in these bodies we will die,
where you invest your love,
you invest your life.
Marina Tkachenko, Evgenia Evgrashina, Oksana Marchyk, and Ekaterina Bondarenko, dancers from St. Petersburg’s Vaganova Ballet Academy

This is my latest Centre for Ideas Project. I have called it F(t)=
I have been playing with the idea of Leonardo’s Divine Proportions of the human body.
My process was: I took all the extreme positions of the thumb joint and gave them each a symbol and then took all the extreme fold of a piece of paper (eg exactly in half) and gave them each a symbol. I then found the order in which these symbols occur by putting the sybols into the formula shown at the beginning. I then found F(t) by writing down the resulting series of symbols. In this video i perform the series of symbols as their corresponding positions of the hand and thumb.
In theory you could do this for the entire body and create a whole dance piece.
