The Movement of Air

What does modern dance have to do with fluid dynamics? I asked myself the same question before watching this video by Adrien M / Claire B called The Movement of Air in which three dancers interact with projections of fluids in motion and even a few grids.

What’s notable is that the animations aren’t pre-recorded; they respond in real-time to the dancer’s movements. (As first seen on Colossal.)
