Feelings

Each shape you see below is an emotion that has been interpreted through the bodies of dancers as well as the space between the partners dancing together. As curator of this material, I have then selected instances where I felt the presence of the emotion the most strongly. This process of translation; from emotion, through body, through curation and animation, means that certain biases have been highlighted while others left out. I am curious to hear from you what feeling you get from seeing these shapes - what emotion do they evoke in you? Feel free to write your own response below, any answers will be used as part of my ongoing research.
