I thought of dance, my poses are dance related, I am nearer to death than I am to my birth. I used what I see around me, what I am familiar with for my images and altered and merged them and incorporated my own image into these.
Always at the back of my mind as I created the images was the thought that this work ephemeral though it might be could very well survive my own demise. I wanted above all to create something that gave some hope with beauty.
This was video of the week at; Le Festival International de Vidéo Danse de Bourgogne, Curated by Marisa Hayes and Franck Boulègue at the Video Dance Center of Burgundy and screened in early May 2016
I made the soundtrack using Rob Jackson's iPad app Moodscaper
The full video is 7 minutes long and rendered to MP4 FHD. I give the video to interested collectors together with an ekphrastic poem. Please send me a nice PM if you would like the video. I value direct contact with collectors far more than any money I might make.
Cheers - J
