Through a fusion of ancient bronze casting and digital 3D motion capture technology Hillier has captured the movements and gestures of the dance in mid-performance. This unique commission, especially for Great Northumberland 2018 investigates the possibilities of interpretation when describing the motion and expression of the human body. By capturing 3D images of the dancer in motion, Hillier has been able to create an exhibition of movement using ancient bronze casting techniques, expertly marrying traditional techniques and modern technology to create.
