Following the presentation and after having discussed the three different planes on which movement exist (essentially the x, y and z axes) we represented these with our bodies and movement in pairs. While one of us would represent movement expressing one of the planes, the other would draw and vice versa until each person had both drawn and moved through each plane. This was a difficult task because not only did we have to represent various types of movements we were not yet too familiar with but we also had to draw continuous movement and changing poses which means either we did a lot of small drawings of each pose very quickly, which was challenging as it was very quick, or we could try larger more abstract-looking drawings almost merged together in movement. I tried both of these methods and did not find any one better than the other however they did create very different effects which translated different feelings (see images below).
