The digital stroboscopic image of a dancer above and the still from the video “Seaweed” by Tell No One both capture individual stages of movement in a single frame. Andy Warhol’s ‘Dance Diagram Series’ (1962) and the ‘Treatise On Quadrille Dancing’ (1819) notate the same complexity in a format that begins to approach something an architect might understand. Capturing the dance of car circulation, Kahn’s Traffic Study for Philadelphia could just as easily orchestrate a massive urban scaled ballet.
Tell No One’s video Seaweed above layers and partially freezes simple movements to create a moving sculpture that is both a structure and a dance.
Jordan Clark’s lo-fi experimental video on human movement presents a jaw-dropping and strangely relaxed vision of limits of the human body.
