Rollerskating is for Old People


By placing the camera on the dancers rather than towards them, this piece questions the idea of camera movement and it's relationship to choreography.  The unpolished aesthetic of the video embraces the fragility of the remote signal device used to capture the movement.  The camera was placed on four dancers that I came in contact with during one week.  The video is edited into three sections beginning with highly manipulated video through editing software to raw footage to finish with the by-product of the dancers movement.
