I got some messages asking me to post some clear explanations about how to apply the closed vectors I have been talking about in the interpretive dynamics investigation.
Well, first off let me tell you that these concepts cannot be applied as they are; they need tools to be conveyed.
A physical manifestation of broader ideas is necessary since everything starts and ends in a physical world in this field.
E.g. We want to explore “accuracy” in movement. This need will be developed when our sense of aesthetics will tickle our minds or when a practical scenario will ask us to get better at it. You move around and you start to perceive the lack of intelligence of your feet? Or more ..You need to jump on a high rail? You better be precise, or you will break down in the process (many fail to interpret the world in this way and they do break, what can I say, natural selection is still a strong law).
Today’s technique and practical tool comes straight from the big cap of the gluing vectors. Here we want to use any part of the body that we can bend as a “hook” to grab the bars/objects and displace our body around. In the video, you can see myself grabbing the bar with different part of my bodies - in this order:
With the back of the kneeWith the ankle
With the hands
With the hips
Here's the hooks' video:
Homework: Build up 5 new hooks and make 1 different sequences with each one, repeat each sequence 5 times, then play it reverse 5 times. Does the hooks still work? Make them reversible.
Remember the rule: If it can bend, it can grab.
Until next time,
