In an ongoing project series, I am exploring physical spaces around water, unpacking ideas around the interface of human boundaries and infrastructure with the natural boundaries and dynamic equilibrium that water seeks. Rivers and streams are constantly changing course, redistributing energy and carving new paths. In a parallel way, dance movement pathways are also not fixed, with some slight variations every time a choreographic phrase is performed. Just as maps of abandoned channels and meandering paths can be an artistic visual story of the ever-changing river, I seek to capture the movement of human bodies along with the dynamism of water bodies. I make dance drawings, with movement pathways recorded on a medium such as canvas or paper on the floor in paint, graphite, or charcoal. I create choreographic works using stream dynamics and river morphology as a point of departure, then perform them, creating the drawing as an artifact of the dance.
More coming soon!
