It’s astonishing how soft and imprecise the human body looks like when confronted with the accurate and rigorous geometry of walls, floors and ceilings. Our built environment is full of right angles, flat surfaces, vertices and edges. However, the geometry of the human body seems to speak another language. The project focuses on this confrontation of forms, trying to find out how precise body positions can be. It shows a series of 15 body postures, where each of them is performed twice. The accuracy of each position becomes visible when the two videos showing the same position overlap and coincide in a single figure. Supported only by the three planes of a corner, the positions result from blocking all possible movements of each articulation of the body. This process generates a series of unusual and extravagant postures, but with a strong inner logic.
