Bryan Tarnowski. Emptied Gestures.
Utilizing her body movements, Heather Hansen creates breathtaking, large scale charcoal paintings. In 2012 she began experimenting with kinetic drawing and has been searching for ways to combine her passion for visual art and dance. The idea for the series ‘Emptied Gestures’ was sparked on a trip to the beach. Whilst dancing on the beach she noticed that the lines carved in the sand by her turns had an interesting quality. She explains her work as follows: ‘Emptied Gestures is an experiment in kinetic drawing. In this series, I am searching for ways to download my movement directly onto paper, emptying gestures from one form to another and creating something new in the process.’
I want to do this!

The Brain is a 14,280 cubic-foot cinematic laboratory where the client, a filmmaker, can work out ideas. Physically, that neighborhood birthplace of invention, the garage, provides the conceptual model. The form is essentially a cast-in-place concrete box, intended to be a strong yet neutral background that provides complete flexibility to adapt the space at will. Inserted into the box along the north wall is a steel mezzanine. All interior structures are made using raw, hot-rolled steel sheets.
Almost without exception, I hear the same confession: “I hate it! It’s turned me into an animal. It was fun at first, but now it’s destroying me. I’m like two people. I’m hooked by a mind habit; now I can’t stop myself. Still deep in my heart, I want to be free. Show me how to get out.”
