The Historical Movement Archive
Different art forms such as paintings, writings, photographs, and even videos found throughout history have been preserved to ensure that future generations can experience the past. However, no one has been able to truly archive historical movement as technologies, such as motion capture, have not been refined enough until today. The Historical Movement Archive was created for that exact purpose, to preserve historical movement as it should be: in motion. Everything from cultural martial arts, and dance will be preserved and made available to researchers and the curious alike at our facility, and digitally, through motion capture broadcasting technologies, and new practices in digital archiving.
