Performance

Gorgeous experimental piece from director Takeuchi that uses commercially available motion-capture software to re-represent a beautiful dance. The flickering, atomic quality to it reminds me of fragments of human composition, that we are never just one thing, but billions of independent components working in synchrony.

Released: 2013

Directed by Maria Takeuchi

A rich and whimsically shot piece with a humorous message for the procrastinator. My eye was drawn especially to the coloring, the extremely serious expression on Ms. July’s face and little details such as the curled meniscus of cranberry juice over the egg-shell frock.

Miranda July’s website is worth the visit too to see other examples of her film, performance and other artistic expressions.
