Taichi - Chen Style 83 movements

This is a story about a street in a muslim district in my hometown Jinan, capital city of Shandong province, China.
Lamb barbaque business brought a huge economic profit to this street and caused a lot of hygienic and safety problems too. The government tried to close down this street several times, however gave up in order not to cause any racial problems. Now the smoke of the barbaque even increased and some side business developed as well, like lamb meat market, street singers... - showing another special aspect of the city development. I asked a Taichi master to fix the camera to his arm and do Taichi in this environment. By the moving traces and the rhythm of the Taichi movements this street scene was recollected into the camera.
