Contemplating the gaze, intimacy, and social/club dance at the Guggenheim
- Eye contact is the entry point.
- What do you see about the person you’re looking at?
- How much of what you see is actually about you?
- How can you feel intimacy with a static image?
- What does that say about intimacy?
- Or about the possibility of simulating intimacy?
- It is possible to be over come by an experience shared with a static image, but the human image carries a different weight than other images.
- Are clarity and directness of gaze requisite for an intimate experience with the subject?
- There is no specific vocabulary, just a general sense of common aesthetic.
- Rhythm grounds abstract movement
- The Self is projected into a specific context with the awareness of being seen.
- Repetition of individual movement vocabulary brings attention to more subtle physical activity, which becomes the most compelling aspect of each subject.
