Solid Traces is a new installation presented at the opening of the Charleroi Danses Festival Biennale in October 2015. The composer Thierry De Mey created an installation based on the traces of movements by choreographer Trisha Brown.

Shizuka Hariu / SHSH Architecture + Scenography has been designing this installation following the artistic vision of De Mey. The mathematical data of the motion captured computer data from the University of Mons was analysed, then used to redesign by means of architectural drawings, so that the installation could be constructed by technicians.

As a result the new installation is designed as an ephemeral sculpture, as solid traces of movements.
It is an exciting new discovery and experimental work of interdisciplinary design.
