The Swan Lake series depicts algorithmically-amplified movement derived from individual still frames. Inspired by the tension and shape of air moving underwater, dancers are transformed into vignettes of surprising complexity and beauty.
The process itself begins as a hand-drawn trace of the original frame, highlighting key areas of tension and flow. Once the initial sample is selected, thousands of iterative functions transform the underlying pixels into painted areas of motion that overlay onto the original frame
