Human Spirograph Uses His Whole Body to Make Huge, Swirling Art

by John Pavlus at

Tony Orrico's drawings are part scientific visualization, part performance art.
Tony Orrico uses a technique to generate his drawings that sounds inspired by Donald Rumsfeld's torture playbook: He kneels, lays, or suspends himself over a giant canvas, puts a writing implement in each hand, and starts rhythmically waving his arms back and forth for hours without stopping. Maybe that's why our friend Maria Popova calls him "the human spirograph": Orrico's machine like process would probably put any other artist in the hospital.
