Rhythm and Graphics
This is a vector graphic series for my Master Degree. It consists of 12 dancing vector graphics + 1 poster for the logo. All the dancing figures are realized by sequences of vector lines, as rhythm is a central element of dancing and graphics too.

First of all I started taking hundreds of pictures during dancing rehearsals and performan
ces to grab movements I wanted to transform into graphics.

I wanted to use a special printing method to realize the series, so after a quick resource I've decided to use metallic paper (special paper fumigated by metal strip) on which it was possible to print by UV matte paint. 
As a result I've got a very interesting surface (which is more visible live) on which the black background is matte while the metallic lines reflect the ambient's light which is constantly changing.
The logo showing the transition between O and G (corresponding to the final letter of 'ritmO' and the first letter of 'Graph'), expresses the transition between the two worlds: Rhythm and Graphics. 
The 12 movements in screen version one after one. 
The 12 posters placed next to each others show a chromatic sequence alluding to the life cycle.
I decided to open my degree show with a mini-performance. I played on "darbuca" and asked my sister, Dóra Viola, to put the 12 movements in a dance improvisation. The interesting thing is that originally the dance moves were the source of inspiration for my graphics, and this time they became a kind of score for the dance performance.
Thanks for watching me.
