  3. My thesis, the experimental animation „Citius, Altius, Fortius“ (Latin for „Faster, Higher, Stronger“- the Olympic motto) explores the interplay of abstract shapes and motions.
    How can the substance of motion be visualized. What degree of abstraction allows a communication with the viewer.
    Therefor movements of famous Olympians where digitalised into 3D through motion tracking and rotoscoping of original footage of Olympic competitions. Camera motions and playback speed of the footage were borrowed and the movements of the athletes were recreated frame by frame.
    The specific character of each sport is reflected in the visual language and the illustration of its motions.

    Text: Sandra Moskova

    The basic idea of the project is built upon the consideration of creating
    a moving sculpture from the recorded motion data of a real person. For
    our work we asked a dancer to visualize a musical piece (Kreukeltape by
    Machinenfabriek) as closely as possible by movements of her body. She was
    recorded by three depth cameras (Kinect), in which the intersection of the
    images was later put together to a three-dimensional volume (3d point cloud),
    so we were able to use the collected data throughout the further process.
    The three-dimensional image allowed us a completely free handling of the
    digital camera, without limitations of the perspective. The camera also reacts
    to the sound and supports the physical imitation of the musical piece by the
    performer. She moves to a noise field, where a simple modification of the
    random seed can consistently create new versions of the video, each offering
    a different composition of the recorded performance. The multi-dimensionality
    of the sound sculpture is already contained in every movement of the dancer,
    as the camera footage allows any imaginable perspective.

    The body – constant and indefinite at the same time – “bursts” the space
    already with its mere physicality, creating a first distinction between the self
    and its environment. Only the body movements create a reference to the
    otherwise invisible space, much like the dots bounce on the ground to give it
    a physical dimension. Thus, the sound-dance constellation in the video does
    not only simulate a purely virtual space. The complex dynamics of the body
    movements is also strongly self-referential. With the complex quasi-static,
    inconsistent forms the body is “painting”, a new reality space emerges whose
    simulated aesthetics goes far beyond numerical codes.

    Similar to painting, a single point appears to be still very abstract, but the
    more points are connected to each other, the more complex and concrete
    the image seems. The more perfect and complex the “alternative worlds” we
    project (Vilém Flusser) and the closer together their point elements, the more
    tangible they become. A digital body, consisting of 22 000 points, thus seems
    so real that it comes to life again.
