Movement IV--negative space

The long drawn intake of air beneath Shaun White, the huge expanse of vertical white around Lindsey Vonn, the slip-slide of shifting apertures among the speed skaters, the cut & swirl of shapes made by the figure skaters and then the meeting & parting of space between the pairs. I was once told that chemical engineering is sometimes called The Cotillion of the Molecules. Here in this ecstatic ballroom of frenzied, nut-jobbed, beautiful and generous humans is a dance that cracks my heart.
