Fantastic Beasts Inspired by Tai Chi Moves
Tai Chi is a graceful form of exercise and movement developed long ago as a martial art that is now widely used for health and wellness, and it can be practiced by almost anyone and in nearly any situation. Often known as "moving meditation," tai chi is a series of slow and gentle motions that are patterned after the movements in nature.
Using a motion-capturing device, we captured the intricate moves of the art and created an image of two Dueling Dragons. Each hand representing a red and a blue dragon, the choreography of the two fantastic beasts best shows the soft yet hard and slow yet fast sequences of this traditional art.
