Approach

My inspiration for this project revolves around light and movement in photography. I wanted to display and portrait the movement of different dance by using lights and photography.

I have chosen to work with the house dance to portrait the movement and rotation of the legs when dancing. My concept is to animate the typeface of the dance name. Each letter will be dancing according to the movement of the dance with the selected EDM (Electronic Dance Music) on the background. For example, each letter of the dance ”house” will be rotating around the dancer to represent the typical movement of the house dance.


Results

The typeface of "Dance" is animated. Each letter dance according to the movement of the selected EDM (Electronic Dance Music) on the background. For example, for ”house dance”, the typefaces are designed to rotate around the dancer to represent the typical movement of the house dance.
