What does the imprint of the autonomous body in motion look like?

In relation to dance and movement, the viewer will typically relate to the movement by watching the one who moves. As a graphic artist, I wanted to relate to movement second-hand: look for the body in motion. Explore the dynamic in a static medium. Using the body as a tool for printmaking or painting is particularly well known from the work of artist Yves Klein. Klein either dictates the movement or pulls the body around like a brush. Here, the forms of the body may be recognised, but the body’s own autonomy is not present. It was precisely a visual documentation of the movement that I was interested in.
