Chaos and disorder are present everywhere, around us and within us - with irregularities which can all be found in and develop in the most ordered of conditions. What is the connection between an organism and chaos? Can we draw parallels between the disorder we experience in human emotions and in the universal behaviour of chaotic and complex systems?
Strange Attractors is a project in three stages, combining dance, film and sound design to create an understanding of conflicting energies and attractions. It explores the way in which we adapt to others when entering another's personal space and examines the continual balancing act between independence and dependency.
