Meet the Incredible Human Spirograph

Artist and dancer Tony Orrico has an amazing Spirograph-like sensibility. Inspired by mathematical compositions, Orrico has transformed himself into a human version of the drawing toy by using mammoth paper and simple writing implements. Resembling a swimmer — minus the pool — Orrico works his arms and body across the giant page, winding himself around in circles while drawing the large geometric designs. It’s incredible to watch and physically taxing, but Orrico doesn’t seem to mind performing the process for all to see. Skip past the break for a look at the artist’s powerful and precise methodology, which marries art and math in drawing form.
