Title: "Leap" in group public
art show "illuminations."
Materials: Quicktime sequences projected
onto the multi-story interior wall of the University of Massachusetts
student center. Rhode Island Philharmonic played underneath the projections
of this group digital video show, "Illuminations."
Notes: Illuminations was curated by
Jonathan Colon as part of the University of Massachusetts Arts Month
festival. To make, "Leap," I spent several classes photographing
and talking with dancers. I felt they were a hidden art group at Umass
and I wanted to create a piece that would publicly honor their work.
I designed a series of posters with images of the dancers and quotes
that they contributed by well-known dancers. I animated the words in
Flash and joined them into one Quicktime movie that played in the "Illuminations"
public multi-media exhibition.
