This is the fall semester final presentation I gave for my thesis 'Tread Erosion'. The project takes aerial video of people walking and computationally translates that into a sculpture. The concept derives from the similarities between human patterns and braided river system. It is based on the question, what would happen if people had the ability to erode a space through movement, just as rivers erode canyons?
