A Glossary of Gestures for Critical Discussion
August 9, 2013 in art by megancharland
Tumblr is consistently a source of amusement and inspiration for me. Recently, I re-blogged the above project on my tumblr. Have you heard of A Glossary of Gestures for Critical Discussion? So great!
Between my 4yrs of undergrad and 3yrs of grad school, I can certainly relate to the gestures illustrated in these GIFs. My personal favorite is The Critical Whirl (seen above):
“The Critical Whirl. ‘I’ve read too much Marx and I can’t get my words out’
Circle hand clockwise in a small but rapid motion towards the audience.
Accelerate and repeat until idea unpacked.”
