Facebook is occasionally useful. It lead me to this artist, Heather Hanson, and her kinetic body drawing. The link I saw in my newsfeed was to distractify.com and I don’t like to feed the linkbait sites; four or five friends posted said link and I did not click. Then Australian poet Chris Mansell, whom I’ve known online since before blogging and elists were the new hotness, and who had a part in creating Dr. Omed, posted the link, and I clicked.
Hanson’s kinetic drawing brings to mind Leonard da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man,
Zen sumi-e ink painting, and snow angels. An angel in charcoal rather than snow, revealing hidden geometries of human movement.
