point of you was not created with any adherence to the original choreography. Instead this piece was created during research into what Contemporary Dance means for me as a performance photographer. That is, how I interpret and interact with Contemporary Dance. After reading the excellent Making Video Dance ~ Katrina McPherson, I also wanted to try looping images into sequences along with very simple editing and see what happened.
When I first shot Contemporary Dance I found myself asking the questions what does this mean to me? Am I understanding what I’m viewing, feeling and shooting? Is there a semiotics to Contemporary Dance that I’m unaware of? As a photographer shooting dance I have come to experience Contemporary Dance similarly to conceptual art, I don’t need to understand what I’m viewing and feeling, I can appreciate simply for what it is.
