Kung Fu Motion Visualization
When working on this project, I was deeply inspired by the dynamics of motion and philosophy of Kung Fu. The work was commissioned for a Kung Fu exhibition. The exhibition focuses on the legacy of Hakka martial arts in Hong Kong and will launch in Hong Kong in September. The Kung Fu Masters whose motions has been captured are: Master Lee Shek Lin, master of Bak Mei Style and president of Hakka Kung Fu Culture Research Society (Variation 3,4).and Master Wong Yiu Kau, master of Lung Ying Style and founding member of Hakka Kung Fu Culture Research Society (Variation 1-3).
Curators: Hing Chao (International Guoshu Association), Jeffrey Shaw (City University of HK), Sarah Kenderdine (University of South Wales)
Venue: Hong Kong Heritage Museum
Visualizing the invisible is always fascinating, and motion visualizations have been created even in pre-digital times with light, photography, costumes or paintings. I have described some of the methods that I applied in this work in my book "Grids for the Dynamic Images", published 2003.
