Abstract / Summary

These Artist pages operate as choreographic notes for the research project Translucent Surface/Quiet Body, developing in residency at L'Animal a L'esquena, Catalonia, Spain.

Working with a large table-like construction, a performing body is documented simultaneously from above and below, while moving-and-drawing upon and over a glass table top. This construction offers two viewing perspectives (above and below) that act as a visual annotation of each other, each offering distinct information of the gravitational forces at play and the reciprocal touch between surfaces of paper-glass and body-skin. The project explores processes of pressing, printing, touching and capturing the impact of the surface on the body.

These Artist pages lay out observations of the project in terms of 1.installing, 2. seeing/sensing and 3.drawing/documenting. Through text and still image the pages play with capacities of surface as support, receptor, membrane, skin, page and screen—and present a choreographics of forces, surfaces, body and documents.
