Our team aims to capture different hand motions representing opposite orientations and how both can be interpolated to create a third output. The first motion represents verticality and is inspired by Louis I. Kahn’s hand drawing of Flower Within a Circle in a live demonstration at the University of Pennsylvania. The second motion represents horizontality and is inspired by Conor McGregor’s walk or better known as “The Billionaire Strut”.
As the result of interpolating both motions, this project explores the idea of cross-pollination as the link between the vertical and horizontal motion. We call this link the Cross-pollination Strut and it’s represented with dandelions that grow exponentially on the curves generated from the flower and walking motion.
