If you’ve come to the end of the week and you’re in need of a little beauty or something to get your artistic eye enticed, watch this beautiful video, which combines dance with 2D motion graphics to show an artist’s struggle, before leading to creative ecstasy.

I also love the quote at the end of the video, from legendary choreographer, Merce Cunningham:
“…Our creative ecstasy in dance comes from the possible gift of freedom, the exhilarating moment that this exposing of the bare energy can give us. What is meant is not license, but freedom….”
