Pictures of body sensationsAbstractLooking at pictures in sports literature, instructive pictures mostly display athletes in motion as seen from a spectator’s perspective. What else should they show? The outward appearance of objects is what we perceive as the visible world. However, looking at others in movement and moving oneself – which eventually should be influenced through instructive literature – differ substantially.
We use vision to perceive the outer world, while orientation in our own body is essentially based on proprioception arising from inside. I argue that instructive pictures should preferably represent the inner experience of the athlete. Therefore, conventional illustrations seem inappropriate for teaching movement since they ignore important clues of people in motion because they are based on an observation of the visible form instead of experience. This research develops methods of picture creation that graphically represent the invisible realm of experiencing oneself in motion.
