Video used for projection/performance. Explores the themes of legacies and life cycles through tableaus and immobility vs mobility vs disabilities vs Beyonce abilities
I always forget to share non-illustration work on this blog so I’ll start now.
This is a project I started in a RISD class, “Video & The Body”. Originally I just wanted to play with the idea of tableaus and embodying different sounds (using a song called “Yume no kakera [Fragments of a Dream] by Nobuchika Eri”).
But I eventually reworked it a bunch of times, changed the music (from a jpop song to 1+1 to I Was Here), and used it for a “drag” performance as a video projection. I use the term drag loosely, because I have a history of just doing…strange performance things…that brush upon gender identity through embodied movements. For instance, emerging from a handmade cocoon to Bjork’s Venus as a Boy.
Anyway this video specifically was used to explore the idea of legacies, since it was my last year at RISD—a really magical time to say the least.
