This is an excerpt i have edited down from Alexandra Knox's 2012 choreographic work 'Wyrd with Grace'. This particular edit features the sections of Wyrd that my video artwork appears in. I was commissioned as the video artist and animateur for Wyrd which was remounted for the 2012 Adelaide Fringe Festival - Previously Wyrd made an appearance in the 2011 Melbourne Fringe Festival but at this stage it did not include my video art.
For the show I performed the mapping style art live on an iPad, manually tracking Alex's movements on the floor as they were happening. 1 circle around Alex represents 1 finger of mine on the iPad Screen, 2 circles represents 2 fingers and so on.
Interactively speaking i found a certain freedom and elasticity expanding on the shapes Alex was performing but i felt somewhat limited by the size of the iPad screen. Ideally, being a pianist, i would have liked to get two hands, 8 fingers and 2 thumbs involved... maybe next time..

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
