Video Installation

Mouvement Perpétuel, 2013

The drip of water, a whirling zoetrope, the flowing limbs of a dancer – the illusion of motion in cinema is explored through interval manipulation.

View full project description

Mouvement Perpétuel is a series of short videos that experiment with an augmented experience of reality through the movement of dance. Through the lens of the camera the individual becomes fractured into multiple selves and our understanding of space and time morphs beyond the experience of the everyday.

The dancer is framed in an environment that we can recognize and understand but reality has been altered and we are invited to explore our relationship to this altered reality through the dance.
