The exercise involved studying the relationship between the human body and its movement in space. That is understanding how space shapes our movement and how movement, in turn, affects space.
The Renaissance painting here is of St. Augustine, which was recreated to record the movement of the body in space. This was further analyzed through a set of technical drawings, which helped understand the anthropometry of the human body. The angle of vision at which the person in the painting is viewing, the required distance of the body from the table, and standard measurements of the furniture around it with respect to the movement of the body were studied and recorded. Further, these body postures were perceived as an interaction with the cityscape in the modern-day era. Scenarios like a doctor in his cabin, a watchman seated by the gate, a commuter waiting for the train, a person by the balcony enjoying a cup of tea, a student working on the laptop, or a person taking shelter from the rain were some examples. The drawings of Philip Steadman were used as a reference to create these drawings.
