re:Forms + SolarErotic

The technique used is part of relating frame to frame animation with dance. Producing a real-time movement, with dynamic pauses. In the post-production software the speed of this single shot is accelerated and a new attitude of the movement appears. When you pass the video on fast-motion a new movement appears, as in a FlipBook, you can observe each page and the illusion of movement. The idea born from a André Lepecki quote “Paranomasia purposes to subjectivity alternative ways to be in time.”
