Analyzing my body

Imagine if I was a cardboard box. A tall and strong box. To understand how the box is build I need to unfold it. Taking it apart and analyzing the sides, top and bottom. We could do the same to the body. My sides, top and bottom are easily traceable by a little help from my friend.

[00:21 ] Now the parts are measured. I’m marking the length of my bones and lems and I’m discovering my height and width.

[00:30 ] But it’s a mess. The information on the drawing doesn’t tell me much Breaking it apart makes me realize -

[00:36 ] - I need a unit of measurement. My unit of measurement is a triangle that is the same size everywhere on the drawing. This makes me capable of measuring my outline and the different parts of my body. But what about structure? I need to understand what is holding the box together -

[00:53 ] - so it won’t collapse.

[00:55 ] Introducing the triangle grid. Using the triangles on my outline, every joint of my skeleton is fixed to the axis of the triangle grid. Now I know where my angles are in comparison to my hips or my elbows to my shoulders.

[01:08 ] Not only does this method give my a greater understanding of the structure, but it lets me scale the body in all different sizes and shapes.

[01:19 ] And know I know what’s making the box tall and strong
