Static Motion

Dance is the destruction of stillness and static. It defies the boundaries of what we thought possible in shape, movement, and display. In this series, I tried to capture the impossibility of calling a still frame dance, because at no point can we view a dance in perfect stillness or render a dancer’s movement in a stagnant display. By jumbling pieces of the dancers and superimposing multiple images on top of each other, I seek to capture their motion and transitions- the pieces that often get lost between bigger snapshots. Also, by allowing the image to lose clarity I seek to capture the fleeting feeling of seeing something you cannot completely recall- the wisp of movement and motion that happens too quickly to be committed to memory.
