1 hour, looped (excerpt)Single channel / Digital Video / Colour / Silent

"Here a grabbed image from a 1930s Busby Berkeley movie of dancers legs is continuously looped as an endless tunnel, the image is slowed and the legs twitch and pulse. Berkeley used women’s bodies to create synchronized kaleidoscopes with machine like precision. The lack of sound references the silent film aesthetic and amplifies the visuality of the film."
