Demonstration of the "Phosphene Variations" at the Location 1 Gallery. This installation allows viewers to come and interact with floating performance legends such as Mikhail Baryshnikov, Robert Wilson, Laurie Anderson, Joan Jonas, Carmen DeLavallade and more. As the spectator motions their hand through the image it changes the course of the film. I wanted to allow the spectator to become the director/choreographer of their viewing experience while simultaneously addressing issues of archiving the body within a historic context. I chose such luminary figures so as to reverse the roles and address notions of "idol-ism."
