"Created at the location where the work was to be exhibited, being-here is named after Gaston Bachelard's notion of "being-there". A dancer is both "here" - at the New Zealand Film Archive in Wellington, and "there" - represented visually as part of the video. She weaves through the frame, physically exploring camera space/time and interacting with the stage-like architecture and the unknowingly participating passersby." - MI
