Title: Phantom Limbs
TRT: 14 minutes
The phenomenon of phantom limbs experienced by amputees suggests that we are hard-wired to perceive ourselves as a whole, yet the brain/body dichotomy is a pervasive and ubiquitous construct.
In Phantom Limbs the ghost is the absent body, the retainer of memories.
The chaotic choreography retraces the detours of our evolution,
the convolution of the self in its attempt to define its own reality.
