I exhibited creative work as part of the Design in Flux exhibition. My piece, titled proximity represents a series of gestural sequences captured during my PhD investigation into design team interactions. The following images provide a visual summary of the work. The print was also accompanied by a GIF that stitched together all still images (selected from video) into a continuous loop to further emphasise movement that is inherent during creative and collaborative interactions.

The work represented captures a sample of images from a series of design team interactions. Gestures are quick, fleeting and often overlooked, the gesture sequences documented often occurred over a manner of seconds. The resultant: a series of stills captured from video data. Each image has been specifically selected and digitally augmented to centre the viewer’s gaze on the embodied gestural interaction. The process of viewing continuous loops of video data and capturing static images formed an important part in better understanding the contained contextual nature of gestures in design and provides an opportunity to preserve the creative intent: allowing for post-reflection and analysis of each gestural sequence.
