Many thanks to 48 Blocks and the Atlantic City Arts Foundation for including me in the weekend with this project. And to all the dancers who participated, thank you so much for making this project a success.
In June, I did an art project in Atlantic City and asked a number of people for help.

The idea behind First Impressions has been on my mind quite a bit lately. It’s fascinating to me how much people are able to instinctively fill in about others upon a relatively brief meeting. Logically and verbally, only so many questions can be answered but much intuitive information still resides in sense and energy.
I do a fair amount of drawing from life. The figure drawing parallel occurred to me – croquis are these fast drawings that capture gesture, shape, position, and weight in seconds. They often contain enough information to fill in the blanks to translate quick lines into solid human forms with energy and emotion.
That’s exactly how first impressions work… we flesh out quick skeletal scribbles into emotionally concentrated human forms with very little to go on.
