„Maybe they would have thought that a part of the sun had broken off and fallen to earth.“
This experimental video work was generated by a multitranslation process.
Circular movement loops performed with fire poi (a traditional maori game) generated the basic sound track which was recorded with binaural microphones. Editing and mixing the sounds with a special computer software allows the audience to hear exactly what the dancer, who was right in between the fire loops heard during recording. This audio-visual work has a hypnotic effect.
