Caroline Grohs is a German graphic designer who created this self directed, stunning integration of dance and geometry for a fictitious theater company called “Motion Theatre.” If you’re a big purveyor of all things Pinterest like I am, than you’ve probably seen this piece everywhere. I love the interaction between letter form, geometric shapes and lines within and out of the dancer. In her artist statement, Grohs had this to say to say about this work:
The logo intertwines the dancers movements and their connections to the theater, so that it appears to be “in motion” at all times. The dancer, their moves and the music create a new sphere due to their everlasting dependence on one another. It seems as if they originate from the theater. Therefore, the logo (on posters) arises in immediate incorporation to the dancer. The expression of the dance as “movement in space” is enforced by elements such as the “floating” typography.
