Artist Eyal Gever, using video footage, homebrew motion capture software, and 3D printing has managed to capture and illustrate the beautiful human motion of one human kicking another.
To create a piece like this, Gever takes a recording of the kick, and animates every motion of the action using his homebrew software. This results in a colorful trail, not unlike Marcel Duchamp's cubist staple, Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2, or the trails of light from the motorcycles in anime classic, AKIRA.
Aside from kicking, Gever has created sculptres showing the physics of car crashes and other collisions. Gever sees a certain beauty in the aesthetic of the morbid, and wants to share it with his audience.
“My ongoing body of works examines the relationship between the simulated events that I create and their physical manifestation. These sublime moments are borne out of simulations and translated as art,” he said. “Beauty can come from the strangest of places, in the most horrific events. My art addresses these notions of destruction and beauty, the collisions of opposites, fear and attraction, seduction and betrayal, from the most tender brutalities to the most devastating sensitivities. I oscillate between these opposites.”
