Circular Movement

This piece is titled Circular Motion.  It’s a project that I collaborated on in 2002 with Allison Fall, a modern dancer and ceramicist.  The show’s theme dealth with the idea of motion inside of stillness.  For our collaboration, we wanted to bring in a sense of video based-motion and Allison’s parralel, movement and dance history.  The video was recorded from above on a 20 ft. ladder.  For the installation, we suspended a LCD projector from the ceiling of the space, masking out the video to fit inside of a pool of white porcelein slip. A random transformation occurred  when the slip began to dry and cracks formed, growing into the dry clay bed.  The installation provided a unique production challenge and also left me with a sense of a calm, meditative presence.
