Artwork Title: Gravity:Pixelated
About the Artwork: This work investigates the idea of falling and it’s interaction with light and dark. Through the medium of interactive projection, we unpack the politics of the body in relation to Gravity, it’s reaction to and resilience against. This work is an act of defiance against the very weight that makes the dance, yet also hinders it, to the point of- we would say- imprisonment. This is where the technology of interactive projection allows us to fly, to be free, to fall.
