"Experiment in the Environment", 1962, Anna Halprin; the wife of Lawrence Halprin, Anna’s experiments with the methods and experience of moving through space and it’s capacity to generate environments were fundamental to the precise and profound interest in choreography and movement found later in Lawrence Halprin’s landscape designs. an example of the “motation” system (movement + notation) developed by Lawrence Halprin in the 1960’s; his theories on the experience of the bodied environment- what we would call the instrumentality of embodiment- elucidated the capacity for movement of bodies, not merely static space or forms, to create landscapes; this was is fundamental to any understanding today of the interest in process and change in the designed environment.
