The "Modulor" is a measuring tool which is based on the fusion of the human form with mathematics. The human figure with a raised arm creates, at the main junctures of spatial displacement, these being the foot, solar plexus, head and the fingertips of the raised arm, three intervals, which result in a series of golden sections. These are named after Fibonacci. In addition, the science of mathematics offers both the simplest as well the most distinctive possibilities of variation within any given value: the unity, the duality, both the golden sections.
This formal system, based on human proportions, as was demonstrated centuries ago in the work of Vituvius and Leonardo da Vinci, acts as both the formula and the generator for danced modules. These result, in interaction with a camera tracking system, as well as a microphone and a camera, in a multimedia project with the human body as its subject matter.
Since it is not tied by any particular text or dramatic context, this system
is able to create a free basis, using both the sound material provided by the
body itself (voice, breath, floor noises) as well as visual sequences of the
moving body using videosampling. In this way a sequence of single modules for
one to four dancers and two actors will be created. These provide sound and
image, as well as acting as modulators for their own material, as movement is
translated into data.
