Filmmakers certainly analyze the world through light, but also through motion. As a filmmaker, this piece shows me the power of one movement, and it captures the beauty of a single movement. It was my awe of such beauty that drew me to film over photography. But it’s certainly odd that a static structure can so clearly represent to me the muse that keeps me filming and hustling in this industry that can, a lot of times, feel more like vinegar than honey.
Now, I just need a sculpture that shows the power of a single camera movement.
A Yoga Sand Sculpture and Time-Lapse Video
Katie Grinnancreated this sculptural time-lapse of her body moving through a daily yoga routine using sand, plastic, and enamel. The end result is representative of both time and form as each split second is layered onto the last creating what is both a singular figure and many. Ginnan describes this as an exploration of “peripersonal” space. “Mirage focuses on the concept of peripersonal space, the space that your body encompasses at its most extended point in every direction, which describes the body’s potential boundary.”
