Poetically vanishing art dance shirts

Make Art With Dance silk screen

Make Art With Dance tankIn June, I did an art project in Atlantic City and asked a number of people for help.

The idea was to visually capture an element of connection through lead and follow social dancing in paint to create a residual piece of art because dance is so temporary, like an installation. Dance is an installation that only exists in a moment, and the only way to experience it a subsequent time is through memory or another form of art.

Art Dance Mashup Project

testing testing
My project window is from 4 – 6pm at Tanger Outlets The Walk in Atlantic City on Saturday, June 23, 2018.

Lead & follow dance. It’s almost kind of an installation of sorts, in and of itself. Temporary and visual, only really present in a couple of moments full of body language, rhythm, communication, energy, movement, gesture, cause and effect, interesting shapes and forms and lines… connection.

I’ve been refining this idea about art, dance, and communication and thinking up a way to capture it in a project. It finally feels like it might be starting to come together, which has me (really) excited. I got the opportunity to move along with this art / dance mashup project during 48Blocks. It should be interesting to explore one of the elements of lead & follow dance: connection, as an installation of sorts. A painting will become a byproduct of the dance conversation.

My project window is from 4 – 6pm at Tanger Outlets The Walk in Atlantic City on Saturday, June 23. I hope you can come.
