Heather Hansen is a contemporary performance artist and dancer based in New Orleans. She came up with a brilliant way to capture her dance movements on a large paper. Heather uses a piece of charcoal and bends and twists her body elegantly across a surface of paper.

“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”

Heather Hansen has also created a video called ‘Emptied Gestures’ that features recordings of her graceful work where you can watch how she gets things done.
