The eye of the camera

At our last meeting, Deborah, Jacob and I talked about the eye of the camera, how it has its own history and cultural context. The view of the camera is distinct from the view of the cameraperson (as shown below in the video Deborah posted).

We are eagerly wrestling with the challenge of finding a way to capture or translate the mover’s experience into video. With that in mind, below is a video that Jacob shot of Deborah on Sept 7.

And here’s a video Deborah shot of Jacob walking towards me.

Deborah filmed this during a flocking score which took us from mid-park to the water.

Below is some of the footage we collected on site.

We gave ourselves the task of making up one movement that “embodied the site” as we had experienced it so far. Each of us (including Batya Ellinoy, who is behind the camera) made up a movement. We then sequenced them and created the dance shown above.

Deborah Black shows us the rhythm of her breath, juxtaposed with the rhythm of the East River (behind her) and the other happenings on site.
