Dance New Amsterdam - NYC
Dyadic Variations, the second work in the series, is a two-stream video projection overlay. The dance body from Sun Studies was recorded and made into a video sculpture using QLAB software during production. The projection overlay explores the question "why video?" Many artists answer this question in terms of controlling the viewer's eye. I am interested in creating moments that allow the audience to have option, a type of opening rather than narrowing. The overlay of the live interaction between dancing images in Dyadic Variations allows for an exploration in depth and dimension between two, otherwise flattened, images.
