Frame Study #1
Dwarfed to giant. Giant but fragmented into pieces. Light explodes across the screen, it does not explode across the "live" space. Imagine the "live" world to be like the world of the frame. Exploit the world of the frame, it's peculiarities and strange "other world" behaviors. Explore this world, dot around in it's light, paddle in it's pools, push up against the edges of it, throw yourself beyond the edges of it. Throw yourself into where? Do you stop "Being" when you exit the frame? Are you spat out thanklessly into the "live" world? Does the screen world leak across the borders? Does the heaviness of the screen gaze fall of your shoulders? Do you miss the validation it dispenses? You've jumped into a 2D picture which seems to unfold and extend and breath according to it's own rules and laws. Where do you belong within it? Where is your place and what are your possibilities? Carving out 3D and 2D space simultaneously. My mind was there and here when I danced. That moment when I moved and the moment as you view the document, converge. Time is folded. I am transported, accessing a future moment through a present gesture. Packaged and bundled, inserted into a time capsule and now unlocked as the document unfolds again and again.
The frame within a frame, offset in the back corner. If I think of this square as my frame instead of the one you view, all the compositional relationships I draw from the dancing choices I make will be slanted.
"Hotspots" of action, places revisited as I sculpt my playground. Resonance of the space, is this emanating from the rule of thirds or of the "live" world? My extremities reach out to the edge of the frame. Reach reach reach.
