Untitled – a work-in-progress by Naomi Morris and Ben Pritchett
A short film inspired by winter weather and Thomas Hardy’s ‘The Darkling Thrush’.
‘..leant upon a coppice gate
When Frost was spectre-grey,
And Winter’s dregs made desolate
The weakening eye of day.
The tangled bine-stems scored the sky
Like strings of broken lyres,
And all mankind that haunted nigh
Had sought their household fires..’
I’m Out is a short exploration of the relationship between the creator of a work of art, and the one who brings it to life.
Neon Aurora was realised through collaboration with dancer, Ian Dolman whose movements describing various sculptural forms were recorded using a motion capture system.
Two dusty white figures turn and twist, exploring the space between them in the narrow, black, dark wilderness of the film-frame.
Sky, sea and land symmetrical compounds, create the space. Amplitude. The horizon is the limit (no limit). Escape and detention.
Different points of view of the performance and various images are screened on the walls of a large building.
Video work and rehearsal in studio feed each other in a search for another body language and creation of an imaginary link to distortions of everyday life.
A short HD film produced in association with the National Association of Professional Dances of Ireland (Dance Ireland), featuring acclaimed choreographers and dance performers, Ennio Sammarco and Cynthia Phung-Ngoc.
This is a video work created during the context of an exchange platform where artists from Brussels, Maputo and Jo’burg worked together for 3 weeks.
The idea of this film is, looping a body movement, to create a temporal and special disorientation on public spaces.
