Im/mediations: REMAINS

Im/mediations: REMAINS is a solo choreographed within a multi-camera video surveillance system. Filmed in one continuous take, the performer moves intentionally in and out of view, such that isolated body parts and gestures are distributed and reconfigured across multiple panels by way of real-time video mixing. That which is visible in each 16×9 panel, is set against all that which lies beyond its frame. The stark aesthetic of REMAINS – white on white – is reinforced by the density and persistence of the electronic music.
