Four singular dancers are portrayed in this series of unconventional video installations, each offering a unique perspective on the life of the body.
Here, unusual projection sites and interfaces engender unexpected encounters between viewers and the video images—images that serve as conduits of the dancers’ subjective experiences. Providing immersive experiences; these installations offer a sense of how each of these diverse dancers encounter the world.
