Images of “This Simple Thing”

As part of my final project for Applied Technologies in Dance, I am using various applications to visually process the choreographic material I am generating/rehearsing for my choreography project “This Simple Thing.”

These images represent the traces of movement accumulated over time throughout the piece. What they depicts and allow me to see is the movement density of the work, where it travels in space, how far it travels and returns to it’s point of origin over time. The piece I am creating is intended to be extremely subtle, punctuated by more expansive “solo” movement. These images were generated from the solo material, and hopefully give me a sense of what traces/resonance/impact those punctuations leave/imbue/have in the overall piece.

I must mention that I have been incredibly inspired by the work of Norah Zuniga-Shaw, Maria Palazzi, and William Foresythe for their work on the “Synchronous Objects” project. More information about this project can be found at:
