MindBody [] LightSound
Performance cycle | 2006 - 2013 | ︎ ︎ scroll down




In the performance cycle MindBody[]LightSound I excercise my ideas for theatre and performance, exploring the connection between light, body and movement in different spatial set-ups, often using electromechanical devices. The purpose of these experiments is to seek out the borders of the observable, ‘abusing’ the physical limitations of the human retina or visual system. In total darkness the spectator has difficulty distinguishing between shape and volume (the body) and experiences involuntary shifts in focus (space and depth). By consciously working with these limitations, interactions between the appearance of the body and human perception occur.
Next step in this cycle is the adaptation of these staged experiments for the film, using an electromechanical machine. The machine – essentially a vibrating mirror – acts as a mise-en-scene to further deconstruction of human forms,  abstracting the anatomy through patterns that run across the reflective surface. The image of the body becomes elusive and ambiguous. Very much alive though, and vibrant, but utterly unrecognizable.
