Encountering Gesturing Bodies
MetadataShow full metadata
Encountering Gesturing Bodies seeks to explore the unconscious/psyche manifesting itself through the gesturing body. The project focuses on the materialisation of anxiety expressed through the gesturing body, drawing inspiration from the inner (private) feelings that can often be distinguished through the rhythmic patterning and repetition of gestures. My interest lies within the negotiation between the body that is performing and the body that is receiving the action/performance. This project uses video and large-scale projection as a means to facilitate the viewer in an embodied exchange. Through heightened awareness, to the observation of minor but persistent gestures, Encountering Gesturing Bodies is an investigation not only into the unconscious and the psyche, but also affective and haptic relations.
