Time Mapping Installation Reveals Human Movement

Helsinki-based artist Pia Mnnikk observes and recreates physical paths of the human form, depicting small intervals of movement within a space, in her Dj Vu series. Using tulle fabric and ink, the artist presents a series of ghostly silhouettes cutting through different rooms, as though each flowing panel is a moment frozen in time. Altogether, each site-specific installation exhibits the trail of one man moving from point A to point B.

Normally, physical footprints aren’t left behind everywhere we walk, so it can be difficult to know the precise areas our bodies have inhabited, but Mnnikk’s creations give us a better idea of the human body’s movement and physical space capacity. They allow us to contemplate how often we retrace our steps without even realizing it.
