Human Spirograph Drawings
by Tony Orrico
Between this and last week’s delightful turntable contraption, the Spirograph is clearly rising to the top of our collective consciousness. If anyone out there has a Spirograph-related idea, strike now while the iron’s hot!
Tony Orrico (PopTech 2010), visual artist, performer, and choreographer, uses his own body to inscribe geometries on paper. Through physically exhausting performances involving highly choreographed motions, Orrico explores line and shape with his actual body, creating works of visual art that record his own motion.
