Here and Not (2017)

Two channel video installation (loop)

Here and Not (side by side version)

Here and Not is a film installation made in collaboration with choreographer Joe Moran that locates the viewer within a dance work. Dancers navigate physical actions and perceptual puzzles whilst the camera moves within and lingers on the periphery of three choreographic phases. Presented as a double sided projection, the looped work activates its viewing by necessitating its audience moves around the work to view it.
