The browser is the stage, the design the dance floor, the music the rhythms between the codes, browsers, designs, bodies and movements. We are the performers. Constraints are in place, but each dance may be a bit different and each stage (browser) allows for certain possibilities (and errors). The issue is accessed through the temporality of performing (and improvising) it.

Care to dance?

1. Choose a stage of your choice (highly recommended: Chrome).
2. Click the title above and we can get to know each other before dancing.
3. Get your scroll fingers ready.

5.Do your first move: Zoom in (cmd +, ctrl +, win +, etc.)
6. Follow the rest of the cues. To open the dance pieces click on the titles. Practice makes perfect. Merde!

    "When I create a video work, for the most part, I am creating videodance, (also known as screendance) - I am not documenting. I am making a dance for the camera. I choreograph a piece knowing that I will re-organize and ‘manipulate’ the material during the editing process, combining Elements such as time, space, speed and spatial composition. I incorporate the movement of the camera, as well as the composition of the frames. Even though the body in movement is the ‘seed’ and inspiration of screendance, the movement phrases also get ‘thrown’ around, the end becomes the beginning, the body gets fragmented and layers of dancers end up superimposed into different backgrounds, creating a new work, which in some cases is far from the movement material that it was based on. My decisions are based on the rhythm and composition of the the new piece, as well as on the design, contrast and the proximity to the camera. I am trying to create a visual metaphor. Using a combination of both, narrative and location. The concept of a video choreography, in my films, is based on my own lyrics texts and ideas."
