Begin is a 64x36 grid of white dots. These dots are like binary code; they are either ON or OFF. But in the right sequence they dance, slide, twirl and jump.
'Begin' explores the boundaries of perception, deconstructing an image to an abstract array of dots. But it also celebrates the ability to decode these patterns and rhythms into something meaningful and emotional. It combines the glorious tap dancing of Fred Astaire and Eleanor Powell with low-res digital minimalism. Twenty-first century digital media can overwhelm with its complexity and ubiquity, but ultimately it creates an authentic experience only when the gap between the pixels is stitched together by the viewer, and integrated into the viewer’s own memory and desires.
