The above video shows an interesting collaboration between Lisa Parra and Sophie Kahn which carries the title: Body/Traces.
Parra created the choreography on video and send this “plan” to artist Sophie Kahn who re-enacted the choreography and translated the movement into “stop motion” or “stills” created with a 3D scanner, After that she reconstructed these stills again into an animation. Body/Traces is a video installation that examines the body and representation through the interaction of three dimensional media, movement, sound and environment, constructing a dialogue between the language of movement and perception. The installation is an imperfect document of the traces left by the dancer’s body in space; an abstracted record of the motion of the body at a specific point in time.
Composer Sawako Kato created a sound score by recording field sounds of the EMPAC building and moving bodies within the space, focusing on the interaction between bodies in motion and the environment. The final audio is a collage that weaves industrial/spatial sounds together with sounds of the moving body.
