Artist Jaimie Henthorn uses the kinetic human body as a tool in her research of the built environment. Articulated is a series of photographs by Chris Vitatoe that documents one such investigation on movement intervention of Herbert Bayer’s sculpture, Articulated Wall, located in the Denver Design District.
Henthorn’s interest in the relationship between Bayer’s sculpture and the spine is the result of a spinal cord injury and subsequent vertebral fusion in 2010. The parallels and discrepancies between the articulation of Bayer’s wall in Denver and Mexico City and that of the human body are on-going topics of Henthorn’s practice-based research.
Jaimie Henthorn is an artist based in Denver and London. She is currently a PhD candidate at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, London, in Creative Practice and Performance Theory. Her research considers the performing body’s unique capacity to investigate architecture. Artist’s website: www.jaimiehenthorn.com
