Product description: "Balletic Goniometer 1 is a measuring apparatus that uses tension, resonance and light to test the deteriorating flexibility in a Ballet Dancer's limbs. It interacts with the creaking and crunching of the petrifying joints of a Ballet Dancer. Henri Bergson in his 'Essay on the Meaning of the Comic' talks of a duality in human form between the 'graceful', 'supple' soul that is “subject to no law of gravitation” and the 'mechanical', 'petrifying' body that holds it back. This resonant machine is used to provide a geometric analysis of how the petrifying body thwarts the fleeting soul of a ballet performer. The tuning systems of the guitar type strings are connected to a blow molded glass vessel that models the gravity that the body imposes on the geometric systems. The level of water in the vessel is a means of calibrating the Goniometer for different readings of the different figures as well as becoming a sound box for the strings."

About the Goniometers: "These 3 series of devices are all measuring apparatus that uses tension, resonance and light to test the deteriorating flexibility in a Ballet Dancer's joints, ligaments and tendons. They interact with the creaking and crunching of the petrifying joints. Henri Bergson in his 'Essay on the Meaning of the ...read more
