Abstract:
'Motion Disabled' is a digital exploration of the bodies of people who are physically different. The work uses motion capture, a technique more commonly associated with feature films and computer games, along with 3D animation to create a kinetic connection with the human form - beautiful everyday movements highlighting all the intricacies and uniqueness of each person's physicality. This animated short film has been created by recording the physical movements of fourteen physically impaired people with conditions such as Spina Bifida, Cerebral Palsy and Brittle Bones - their physical signatures captured in 3D forever. Motion Disabled was exhibited internationally in 17 countries and 25 locations on December 3rd 2010.
Type:
Film; Animation
