Summary:The images on these projection reels were projected from inside the light-boxes. The video imagery was designed specifically to work within the installation itself rather than independently as seen here. The layout within the space, the physicality of the light-boxes, their relationship to one another, to the architecture of the performance space and to the dancers was as important as the video imagery itself.
Projection Reel 1: This was the first imagery to appear on the light-boxes. The scanning bars moved across all 7 light-boxes from one side of the space to the other mimicking the movement of the dancers back and forth across the space. The bars reveal a glimpse of a watery landscape, something that will be revealed at the very end of the performance. The pace of the bars and their soft edges was very important to the mood of the imagery.
