Abstract

Selangkah Guru is a Malay traditional exercise, and it is one of an essential cultural practice. The aesthetic movement from Selangkah Guru contains explicit and implicit visual meaning. Hence, by exploring Motion Capture Technology, the researcher are able to visualize the invisible visual aesthetic performed by Selangkah Guru. The study aims to visualize the invisible line captured from Selangkah Guru to understand the representation of the gesture. The researcher placed 29 markers reflector on Selangkah Guru performer’s body joints. These markers visualize various trajectory lines from body movements. The finding suggests the significant correlation between visual aesthetic lines and their interconnection with Malay’s philosophy and belief.
