This weeks activity was quite difficult. I could not come up with anything that would make sense. After thinking long and hard about this procedure I needed to create, I thought of this little dance that I would constantly do as a child. It was originated with my older cousin being a cheerleader growing up. My family and I would always go to her performances and I absolutely loved watching her. Since I lived across the street from her, I would go over and watch her practice with all her other teammates every other day. After watching her for so long I would come up with my own moves and this is what I came up with.
- Stand on your toes and look straight forward.
- Lift your hands up to your head as if you are doing a sit-up.
- Take one step forward (still on your toes) with your right foot.
- Repeat Step 3, but now with your left foot.
- Repeat Step 3.
- Repeat Step 4.
- Extend right arm out.
- Extend left arm out.
- Put both arms back to your head.
- Rotate 180 degrees to the left.
- Repeat Steps 1-10 5x and put some rhythm into it!
After repeating this procedure my results were that it turned out to be a type of work out. As I did it longer and faster I began to sweat and become tired. Not only did I get tired I looked like I was actually doing a dance. If you put your own rhythm to it, it could look quite entertaining. My roommate and I started doing it as a type of workout for a bit by playing some dance music. My procedure is not the most complicated, but it did work out as I planned. This activity was different and a bit difficult for me to understand. It helped to understand the skills you need to create algorithmic art. I will definitely try this again!
