Athlete Dynamism

Data visualization of athlete body motion

While we all live everyday by moving various parts of our body unconsciously, athletes are specialists at doing this consciously. They control their body extremely precisely and challenge their sports with it. When the motion of athletes are visualized through a motion capture data, one can almost feel the athlete’s breathing from it. Furthermore, by removing elements such as competitiveness and scores from a sport, we can start seeing the true beauty of motion in a pure form.
