Although dance primarily is movement, it is full of gestures and moments of stillness. Watching dancers move, I often see a series of “flash bulb” moments instead of a “movie”. This project is an exploration of the gestures of dance, finding moments of stillness within dance movements. Without the connecting movements of dance, the images appear abstract and surreal. The diptychs presented here are drawn from the set of individual images exploring the geometry of gestures and movements.
