Motion Fabrication

Creating Space Through Motion

The goal of this project is to create space using the motion of the human body. I chose to replicate a common childhood motion; that of the leapfrog.

 

From the analysis, we can track certain parts of the body and how they intertwine and communicate. I also discovered that the motion contains contracting and expanding regions, elements that are used in architecture to define space.

 

Once the analysis and digital fabrication were completed, I used a 3D printer to create the space my body created while doing the maneuver.
