Ricardo Beira – Ballet Cinétique
My project consists of designing a kinetic art work that captures the fluid movements of ballet dancers and how they interact with one another and in space. Different mechanical systems are carefully combined and animated without electronics or software. Behind its apparent complexity, this object is designed in a minimal way. It echoes the human body in its design without imitating it in its form. Almost alive, the sculpture honours the grace and elegance of human movements in a kinetic ballet.
