notation 3 - Body in movement as defined by space and activity

You are to draw your body in motion. using GPS and audio/video. Your notation will describe the activity of the body and the space that it occupies, defines, is defined by. You are to choreograph the set up in a way that allows you to be analytical.

References for inspiration:
Photography; Chronophotography by Marey and Muybridge, Stereoscopic photography by Gilbreth, Photomontage by Matter....
Painting; Nude Descending the Staircase by DuChamp...
Drawing; Traject Pendant un an d’une Jeune FIlle du XVIe arrondisement by Paul-Henry Chombart de Lauwe
Moving Image; Bullet Time (The Matrix)
Sculpture; Apollo and Dafne by Bernini, Unique forms in the continuity of space by Boccioni, the Walking Man by Rodin...

You may depart and/or reinterpret these examples. They are meant to get you thinking. Keep it simple, yet exploratory. Be rigorous in your thinking. Consider the potential of the tools you will be using and of your body as both a drawing instrument and the subject under analysis. The notation is to be around 30 and 90 seconds but as related to the length of the activity/ movement.
