LORQ:TECH #50: ~ Another Toroid Snack ~

22 Apr

The cross point of a figure 8 is pointed either down or up and the angle at the cross point is stretched to 90 degrees.  Either the left or right hand is leading the figure 8.  Whichever hand is leading bends up to floor plane (45 degrees at the cross point) while the trailing hand becomes the leading hand.

LORQ:TECH #41 ~9 Flower Families! (with Trails)~

18 Jan

One hybrid is used to show 9 different planar relationships of the poi to the hands (With Glow Trails! Check it out!)

My favorites (in order) are @2:03, 1:25… okay the toroid at 0:50 looks sweet with the trails too.

0:07 –Poi rotating in Wall Plane on Y and Wall Plane on X {2D}
0:18 –Poi rotating in Wheel Plane on Y and Wall Plane on X (bending in Floor) {Helical-Toroidal)
0:38 –Poi rotating in Wheel Plane on Y and Wheel Plane on X {Helical}
0:50 –Poi rotating in Wheel Plane on Y and Floor Plane on X (bending in Wall) {Toroidal- Diamond Mode}
1:07 –Poi rotating in Floor Plane on Y and Floor Plane on X {Helical}
1:25 –Poi rotating in Wall Plane on Y and Floor Plane on X (bending in Wheel) {Helical-Toroidal}
1:47 –Poi rotating in Wall Plane on Y and Wheel Plane on X (bending in Floor) {Helical-Toroidal}
2:03 –Poi rotating in Floor Plane on Y and Wheel Plane on X (bending in Wall) {Toroidal- Box Mode}
2:29 –Poi rotating in Floor Plane on Y and Wall Plane on X (bending in Wheel) {Helical-Toroidal}
2:43 –Flow Jam showing some flow with the concepts.

Plane-Bending in wall plane means the poi rotate in wheel plane and bend to rotate in floor plane. 4 timing and directions can be perfomed 2 ways each: Toward/Toward (and Away/Away) and Toward/Away (and Away/Toward).
