Drawing in Motion
21 September 2013 - 7 February 2014
Media Space at the Science Museum, London
Presence is a circular four screen video installation. The screens show moving abstract forms against a black background, the motion of these forms reveal a human presence. These life-size abstract forms have been created by motion captured performances of dancers Julia Eichten and Nathan Makolandra from Benjamin Millepied’s LA Dance Project. The playback of the performances in Presence show the dancers in a growing number of digital ‘costumes’, for example, glowing feathers or elaborate sculptural trails. The performances evolve in appearance over time, changing materials, colour and behaviour but always responding to the soundtrack.
