Artist Statement

A performing body moving in space is captured in detail at regular intervals and represented as data orga-nized in a hierarchy. The data are abstractions that are then retargeted and reconstructed. The new or dif-ferent forms the data retain elements of the original performance because the body moving in space is a system of inter-related parts – a movement system.

Our bodies and worlds are words on the precipice of comprehension. finding connection. being alone – being together. communicating – failing communication. connecting – disconnecting.

“Alone_02” is one of an ongoing a series of animated artworks begun in 2022. The animation comes from a combination of motion capture sessions with generative 3D modeling of text characters. The music is influenced by the same motion capture data that drives the visual elements.
