Close to the Glass
In 2008 I was in NYC and there was an exhibit called "Close Encounter" about Chuck Close and Philip Glass at the Met. While I did not see the works I did take a moment to make a dance a day about it. I don't usually hold the camera as I dance which is exactly why I decided to hold it for this particular video. Sometimes its good to do things another way even if you know the outcome won't be very good. What I found interesting about the video is the connection between me, the glass, the portrait of Philip Glass, my breathing and the sense of mirroring that happened. The portrait is both inside and outside, I am outside but my reflection is inside.
