Body/Traces

Body/Traces is a single-channel, looping video installation, made in stop-motion using a DIY laser scanner. It was designed to be shown in a small, darkened space with the dancer projected at life-size. During the process, the artists addressed the questions: What happens to the body in motion when it becomes a still image? And what becomes of that image when it is returned to the moving body whence it came?
