Dancer and performing artist, Tony Orrico, has made a human spirograph art with the fluid movements of his arms. Amazing patterns of symmetrical mathematical curves are created through a repetitive process by tracing the contours of his upper body or simply drawing with the wing of his arm span. He simultaneously moves his entire figure to the degree of design that he wishes to invent with infatuating precision, incredible focus and bewildering endurance. His work is truly mesmerizing art and mathematics. I am in awe!
