Artist contorts her body and makes breathtaking patterns

Heather Hansen is one of those artists who isn’t afraid of working up a sweat while producing a wonderful piece of art.

A giant paper canvas, and some pieces of charcoal grasped in each hand are all she needs before embarking on a gruelling physical routine.

She begins by contorting her body into carefully choreographed gestures and the trails of charcoal record her movements behind her.

The kinetic drawings become a way for Hansen to merge her love for visual arts and dance into a unified art form.

The patterns are distinctly reminiscent of the forms found in a Rorschach test or cycles found in nature.
