BLACK
LIVES
MATTER

As designers committed to decolonizing our practices, we feel that it is important for us to help amplify Black voices that have historically been underrepresented within our discipline. We are using this site as a public platform in support of Black Lives Matter within our communities and beyond. We ask that you take some time alongside looking at our work, to explore these collected resources.

The poster meant to illustrate the concept of "human figure as sculptural element, which was proposed by Schlemmer in his artistic theoretical works. Here, the dancer is regarded as an "sculptural element", and together with the items around it, form a fluid field of the force of motion.
The second poster shows the plasticity of the dancer's form in the design. Man is perceived as a coherent form but also as the part of the wider entirety of the geometrically determined space. Thus the form itself could be fragmented and reshaped in transfiguring the space.
This sample of typography specimen is inspired by the airborne and fluid quality of the choreographic movements. The poster also projects an architectural aesthetic within as choreography could be understood as a form of spatial design in this project.
This video shows the result of an interactive performance. During the performance, spectators are able to watch this "visual spatial event", where the trails of the performer's movements intertwine with the human form while transfiguring the space.
