Mapping the Movement of Dance

Many of us envision dance with a human figure, but in this piece you will only see a fraction of the human body. I chose only to show hands and feet – white LED lights portray hands and red LED lights depict feet. When we watch a dance performance, we see the movement frame by frame in real time while in this piece we can see the past steps of the dancer.
