One word that almost never comes up when people are fighting is ‘beauty’. That’s because fighting is ugly and sometimes even bodily fluids get spilled. It’s meant to be brutal and visceral. As unusual as the pairing of “beauty” and “fighting” is, one artist, Eyal Gever, was able to turn this paradigm on its head, and actually make art out of combat. Gever used 3D printing to create a large sculpture of which Leonardo DaVinci of “Vitruvian Man” would be proud of.
The sculpture is elegantly displaying a simple human action—a kick. What makes this piece of art so interesting is the fluidity of the movement that the work captures. Gever was able to create the abstract work by using video footage and homebrew 3D motion capture software.
