Ljós is the translation of the latent elements of dreams into visible contents. The body is the medium through which the connections between light, sound and movement are explored, leading the spectator into an unreal space, rarefied and disorientating.
Live Media Performance based on the real-time interaction between the movements of the body, sound and the projection of generative graphic features.

This performance took place at Powerhouse Arena during the 2010 Dumbo Arts Festival: 36 models followed live direction, as vocalists and violins emerged from within the "living picture." The performance featured an original a Cappella score by Rima Fand and Sarah Small, and co-performance direction by Adam J. Thompson. Directly following the performance, a panel of choreographers, curators, and art historians (Jill Sigman, Mashinka Firunts, Danny Snelson, and Natalie Galazka) led a discussion about the contemporary intersection of performance and photography. The panel was moderated by Elizabeth Barragan and was curated by Lindsay Comstock.
