PROJECT OVERVIEW

img_dil.png

DILATION is a study of animation techniques of motion capture through dance. The project explores the differences of elapsed time through a sequence of eloquent dance solos and duets - it follows the idea of space-time relativity where there are no absolute positions in time and space. A non-linear journey demonstrates how the body constructs and affects the space and how the perception of movement changes over time. The emotion will intensify from slow conscious sections to rapid explorations until eventual regression.

Project created to be displayed at the IAC Building in New York. The custom made screens measures 11520px x 980px. 

Music by De Ke - "CHAOS".  

Dance solos performed by Michaela Rae Mann and Berit Ahlgren.
