Abstract:
Motion Disabled: Unlimited is the 2012 edition of Simon Mckeown’s internationally shown exhibition Motion Disabled. The 2012 impression of the work studies paralympic body shapes and actions and uses 3D software to create large inflatable structures, as well as animations for presentation both on public screens and on art led Iphone applications. We are given the opportunity to watch and study the physicality and movement of the modern day disabled athlete, the paralympian. What is it like to walk and jump without legs, or to sail with one arm? The work continues to explore the artists’ interest in normality and difference and is made up of three distinct sections in addition to the web site. A large inflatable sculpture will form the core part of the exhibition. This will be placed in cities and events during 2012. In addition a series of motion capture based work featuring the paralympians will be shown, featuring shot putting, basketball, and much more and will be shown in galleries and outdoor. Finally linking everything together will be a small Iphone application which will introduce viewers to the exhibition and its concepts using high tech but accessible methods. Athletes had their motions captured at Centroid's astounding facility at London's historic Pinewood Studios.
