Hand dances. 1,000 caresses.
Movement is a way for me to think about the social implications embedded in the choreographies of space. When and how and where people are allowed to move. In what ways one can move. Improvisation holds space for movement in constraint. For some of us, more than others, enclosure is a familiar condition. Capitalism’s chase, it’s algorithmic appetite. These hand dances are notations, sifting compositions with the world’s moments enfolded.
Hidden in the hands an alluvial transcription of reach and embrace. The final flickers of the body’s expression, caress and touch. Haptic grasp. Emphatic abandon, ephemeral betrayal. An atmosphere of messages.
