Just as the sea shapes the rocks over time our soft tissue shapes our bones over time, the physical posture reflects the mental posture. This is a fascinating look at how it all works.
The rad (short for radiological) folks at Hybrid Medical Animation have developed an incredibly neato way to see how our leg bones are connected to our hip bones, making it animatedly awesome and beautiful with yoga in motion. Check it out.
How the team described their idea:
Our goal for this piece was to create a realistic representation of radiological (x-ray) imaging. Instead of just creating a still image, however, we wanted to combine the beautiful moves of yoga with this new visual approach to bring the full human skeleton to life.
Technical challenges included aspects such as achieving proper bone densities and representing actual bone marrow inside each individual bone.
The result is a profoundly gripping and humbling journey through our skeletal landscape. Enjoy.
