Abstract or description

Originally influenced by Norman McClaren's Pas de Deux (, I attempted to create a flowing dance like motion via abstract animation in Quartz Composer. Gestural input to the computer trackpad was designed to initiate rotating sequences of openGL curves. These animated curve splines possessed similarities to the movement of a dancers arms, but are generated entirely synthetically. The addition of video feedback, further processing and multiple overlays created circular forms, less in common with a dancing motion, which interact throughout the evolving video composition.
