“Emptying Gestures” is a performance by artist and dancer Heather Hansen. Based in New Orleans, Heather invites her audience to watch her as she draws beautiful symmetrical images on paper using her body. Heather belongs to a new breed of performance artists who produce kinetic illustrations. Heather also has a series of videos of her work called “Emptied Gestures”. She said: “Emptying 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.”
