1. This is a model of an installation view; one space with two projection channels. In front of the projections would be rows of black shoes. The work has been also shown in a single channel screening.

    Tribe Dance is a two-channelled video work that builds a dialogue between two characters, the space they inhabit and the movement they induce or subdue to. The piece constructs a narration on the mental-physical experience of anxiety, composes choreography on the will to control one’s own reactions and the impossibility of that control.

    The fear of social situations is a common Finnish fear disorder. It causes anxiety related to social spaces. A common way to try and control one’s fears is to exclude oneself from situations and spaces that cause that fear. The excluding can be continued, until the only thing uncontrollable in the space is the person who’s afraid.

    The piece studies the poetics of fear and the aesthetics of its experience.

    The work was finished as a part of a videoart course on Tampere University of Applied Sciences, School of Art and Media. The course leaders were Fanni Niemi-Junkola and Sari Tervaniemi.
