Artist and dancer Tony Orrico makes large scale Spirograph-style drawings, using his body to create the effect. His “Penwald” drawings are created before an audience in performances that can last for hours (here’s a shorter nine minute performance at Postmasters Gallery in New York City.) Orrico describes his process in an interview and performance at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington D. C.
