The Lightning Suits

These luminous suits are worn by performers  that are manipulating hand-held light wands.   This allows  the  performers  to create and choreograph 3-dimensional volumes of kinetic  light.  Inspired by the pioneering motion studies of Eadweard Muybridge, the luminous motion of the performers arms, legs and torso created  complex imagery  that  appears  mechanical and machine-like,   as the  viewer struggles to  glimpse  the hidden human form generating the motion.
