Studio Ghosts, 2018

Single-Channel Video for projection  (12' 00'')

 

Studio Ghosts is a single-channel video which shows two ghosts dancing in my studio. In a dreamlike state, the ghosts enter the frame in and out, interacting and dancing together. Their bodies move in slow-motion, however one ghost dances 20% slower and the other ghost 50% slower than real time, suggesting that they move in different time zones, yet coexist and sense the other body. A systematic use of repetition, suspension, acceleration and deceleration in the dance choreography explores temporal elasticities and thus creates propositions to transform our experiences of time.
