Rock/Bodies Installation

A generative compression is seen in the folded layers of rock that are embodied by a dancer in
the photo-video installation, Rock/Bodies. It is a conversation between one mass and the echo
of another. The scale at which these rocks were layered, displaced, pinched, hollowed, and
crumpled is vast and intangible. When the dancer’s body holds that vastness, there is the echo
of form and of movement, though at a different rate. But there is also the echo of formation:
the human body is composed of many of the same elements composing the emulated rock
layers, leaving the question: where does the human body end and the rock body begin?
