Fusion I and II
The Fusion pieces were created for a Video/Dance collaboration between Natasha Torres Garner, Freya Olafson and myself. Both works represent explorations into the fusion of body and technological systems.
Waking Narcissus - 2008
Waking Narcissus is a performance that is part contemporary dance and part real-time film-making and animation. The dancer is a cybernetic organism that mediates real physical impulses and movements into images. The work poses questions of the current and impending role that technology plays in increasing our involvement in the exercise of seeing ourselves.
Amphiboly - 2008
This performance piece was created for a show put on by Greg Hanac at the Graffiti Gallery in Winnipeg. I am using a wiimote to control the video (when it is recorded & which screen it goes to) camera is being operated by Les Klasssen. This piece was created in response to the idea of amphiboly, but is ultimately a development of the work done in ‘Hands’ I am interested in making physical choices, seeing them from the outside (in video) and having that affect my next physical impulse, as well as allowing compositional choices into the mix.
Hands - 2007
This piece was developed in collaboration with Cameron Johnson (Audio). The original performance was not recorded so this is a remount of part of the video for documentation. All video is recorded and controlled by the performer in real-time. We were investigating the way that the development of context affects and transforms our perception of ideas and at the same time how context affects our ability to reinvent our perceptions and associations.
the space between events
this piece was my first exploration into movement and real-time video. It was created for LINK, a Young Lungs multi-diciplinary production.
