I created model of my body by recording the movement of  my hands along myself. This was possible thanks to set of optical cameras and tracking (VEKVA System created by Jiri Clmelik).

Gestures are leaving marks in the space and time. It is creates certain visual structure of human behavior.

Final forms are modified by an unintentional movement of my body. The possibility of endless variations demonstrates the essence of female form – my body acquires the archetypal quality. 
The process of creating was recorded, thus the performance accompanies the final scultural form. Some variations were 3d printed, one was carved in carrara marble.
