I've been working on a lot of different projects but none are quite ready to show, so today's weekend project is brought to you by my lovely friend, Laura Summers.
Laura is a web designer and a contemporary dancer. She also does a bit of film making on the side and has recently been working on a short film entitled "Canvas." The film studies a dancer's body as she gradually covers her flesh in red paint. It explores ideas of "the skin as interface to the external world...the skin as external memory keeper and bookkeeper of life events."
Below are some snapshots from filming day. I call it a weekend project but that's just me bastardizing my own system (it's my blog, right?). This is more a snippet of development that's been a long time in the making. The film is currently being edited and will be presented as part of dance+anecdote at this year's Fringe Festival.
I find this little teaser so evocative. I can't wait to see the final product.
Ps. Do those beams look familiar? My friends and I are slightly obsessed with this warehouse space. Seriously though, how good is the quality of light?
