Slithering is a alternative dance documentation where the dancer dances and reacts with the Slithering program. The program scans from a camera a one pixel wide segment and orders these segments to become one long picture in time. In this project the dancer has to find a completely new kind of movement, if she wants to control the visual end result. It also changes the documentation of dance in time and space to now happen only in time. See video;
Each vignette is about 50 seconds of the dance, and then the final composition shows the whole choreography at once. Made with custom video processing software "Redimensionator." See here more tests with other kinds of video.
Camera: Timo Wright, Code: Forrest Oliphant, Dancer: Anna Mustonen, Music: Jyri Pieniniemi & Forrest Oliphant.
